Interviews

We know you’re more than a piece of paper. Admissions interviews give us a chance to better understand you—and your potential. An interview may be requested.

Although the interview for qualified candidates will be conducted via Zoom, in-person campus visits can be arranged so an applicant can tour of our medical college facilities. Tours give applicants the chance to learn more about TouroCOM, our parent institution Touro University, and the surrounding community, as well as available housing options.

Faculty members of the medical college usually conduct each interview, and submit their recommendations to the Admissions Committee for review. An interview does not guarantee acceptance.
