Our excellent professors, passionate students, unique flipped classroom, and focus on a current, continuously updated curriculum allow us to train highly skilled and resourceful osteopathic physicians ready to deliver holistic, compassionate patient care. We’re training the next generation of doctors to live and practice where they’re needed most.
At each of our campuses we focus on increasing the number of underrepresented minorities in medicine, promoting practice in underserved areas, improving the health of our communities, and graduating exceptional physicians who listen and can deliver competent and compassionate care.

What Sets Our Medical School Apart
A Focus on Integrated, Holistic Healthcare
Our Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) program fits perfectly within the modern medical and healthcare landscape. We give students the skills and tools to treat the whole person, and not just their ailment or disease.
Innovative Teaching Methods
We use a unique hybrid approach for our instruction. For many classes, you’ll engage with the material online at home, and then come into class to discuss with your professors and peers. This method allows you to learn at your own pace and utilizes in-person class time for the most important part of learning – hands-on work and live problem-solving.
A Supportive Learning Environment
Medical school is challenging, and academic support and guidance is a crucial factor to success. We oversee each student to identify any roadblocks, and our dedicated faculty offer additional guidance and support as needed.
Our students are smart, ambitious, and passionate. They come from all over and are as diverse as the populations we serve. They are committed to careers in medicine and the privilege of providing for their communities. Our students care. And they care deeply — about helping others and supporting each other.
We’re a Top School for Diversity
TouroCOM has been recognized for our excellence in diversity from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine five out of the last six years: 2018, 2019, 2020, 2022, and 2023. It’s a reward we take great pride in, as it recognizes our efforts to fulfill our mission to increase the number of underrepresented minorities in medicine.Learn More
By the Numbers
In 2021 TouroCOM Harlem scored #1 in the US among Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine on the First-Time Pass Rate on COMLEX-USA Level 1
We’ve won the Top College for Diversity HEED award four times in the last five years - 2022, 2020, 2019, 2018
More than half of our graduates (2018-2022) go into primary care, an underserved area of medicine.
We’re centered on community – the community in which we live and the community we create. In keeping with our mission, we are committed to bringing medical care to underserved areas and serving the medical needs of our communities, in New York, Montana, and across the U.S.
As a physician, your bedside manner, body language, tone and genuine interest in your patients’ health and happiness are an important part of your practice. At TouroCOM, we emphasize a compassionate approach to patient care and allow you to learn how to interact with patients in an effective yet caring way during patient simulation experiences.
As a young agile school we always strive to stay up-to-date and ahead of the curve in how we educate and what we teach--evolving to meet the needs of today’s medical students and tomorrow’s healthcare system.
We're committed to tipping the scales on underrepresentation in medicine. That means training a diverse student body and creating pipelines for underrepresented youth to become physicians. It means training our students to understand and be culturally sensitive to communities that are underserved in medical care, and encouraging our graduates to practice in underresourced and rural areas. In Montana in particular, we will provide medical education opportunities to the Native population and train our students to meet the needs of the local Native American community.
