Once we’ve received the supplemental application, the Admissions Office will contact qualified candidates to schedule an interview.

The Interview Process

We invite selected applicants to visit campus for an informational presentation and a formal interview. Campus visits and interviews are conducted on a rolling basis from October through May.

The Admissions Director or a Student Affairs representative will lead a tour of the medical school facilities, and provide some historical background about TouroCOM and our parent institution, Touro College.  We’ll also provide details about the surrounding Harlem or Middletown community, and available housing.

For the interview, candidates will meet with several faculty members. Interviewers’ feedback is considered alongside an applicants’ academic credentials. An interview does not guarantee acceptance.

Acceptance to TouroCOM

The Admissions Committee submits their final recommendations for acceptance to the Dean of the College, who reserves the authority to approve all applications. We usually notify candidates of our decisions within two months of the formal interview, and make every effort to notify waitlisted candidates as soon as possible.
