We take a patient-centered and scientific approach to health and disease.
Our students spend the first two years becoming deeply immersed in the basic sciences. You’ll learn that all factors—biological, psychological, and environmental—must be taken into account when diagnosing and treating patients. We use the latest educational technology available to give students the chance to start problem solving and thinking like a doctor. And our faculty track your progress and can step in to help whenever needed.
During the 3rd and 4th year, you’ll train at one of our hospital affiliates throughout the NY Metro area to begin putting your skills to practice in areas such as emergency medicine, family and internal medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics, psychiatry, surgery, and radiology. We also offer a wide range of electives, including international study, so you can further explore your specific interests.
Focus on Communities
Located in both rural and urban areas, many of our clinical affiliates focus on treating the medically underserved. Compassionate care is a cornerstone of the TouroCOM philosophy and all of our students engage in community service.
