Welcome, TouroCOM Class of 2019!
A few words of welcome and advice from the graduates of 2015.
Get involved in organizations, and create a social support group. Be aware of timelines, and reach out to professors, advisors, and contacts at your preferred clinical rotations. Come in with an open mind, and don't be afraid to pursue a different medical route than you initially expected. Put in that extra effort and work hard, but also take breaks. And always remember: This is an incredible honor.
Before leaving the halls of TouroCOM and the streets of Harlem for internships and residencies across the country, the graduating physicians of 2015 sat down to offer the incoming class some words of wisdom and share some of what they learned on their journey through medical school.
