Underrepresented Communities

Part of TouroCOM’s mission is to help more underrepresented minority students become doctors, as well as having our graduates serve in underrepresented areas. Staying true to our mission, in Fall 2018 we welcomed the Class of 2022, and with them, 38 minority students, our largest number to date.
