TouroCOM Counseling & Wellness

Medical school is exciting, but sometimes stressful. Counseling & Wellness is here to provide the support students need to help them succeed. Services include confidential short-term counseling, referrals to off-campus resources, and various ways to promote wellness in support of the student’s medical training.

The Counselors

The TouroCOM mental health Counselors are licensed clinicians who provide a safe environment that prioritizes a student’s emotional well-being and growth. Counseling is a chance to talk over what is on a student’s mind with an objective person, and an opportunity to develop skills in order to better manage the demands of medical training. Counseling is a process that is in many ways tailored to fit a student’s individual needs.
