Touro University Nevada

Educating caring healthcare and education professionals to serve, to lead, to teach.

Touro University Nevada was established to help address critical needs in health care and education, and as a resource for community service in the state of Nevada. A non-profit, private institution affiliated with an international system of higher education, the university opened its doors in 2004 with 78 medical students. Today, TUN is home to more than 1,300 students in a wide range of degree programs in allied health sciences and education, as well as osteopathic medicine. Many of these programs are the first of their kind in the state of Nevada. The TUN campus is also home to both a full-service patient health clinic, staffed by practicing faculty members, and a multidisciplinary Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities. In addition to serving the community through care, both facilities serve as on site learning laboratories for students across the disciplines. **Posting of marketing messages, advertising commercial entities, political messages, or for-profit events is not encouraged on this page.

We want to give a special congratulations to Dr. Amy Stone, Assistant Professor in the Basic Sciences Department for winning two Travel Awards from the American Society for Microbiology!

“I am incredibly honored to have been selected for these two awards, especially because I’m so new in the field,” she said. “I’ve only been faculty at Touro for six months, so it’s really exciting to be acknowledged as someone at the forefront of my generation’s educators and researchers.”

Congratulations, Dr. Stone!

Happy Monday, everyone! We hope you had a terrific weekend.

In our latest edition of "Catching Up," we spoke with Dr. Medina Culver, a 2015 graduate from the Touro University Nevada College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Dr. Culver is originally from Billings, Montana. After completing her family medicine residency back home, she returned to Southern Nevada where she works at Wikler Family Practice.

"Touro checked all of my boxes," she said. "The people were nice, it had great weather, and I loved the university. That’s why I wanted to go to Touro."

We hope you enjoy her story! 👩‍⚕️🎉

Happy Friday, everyone!

Medicines, skin products that increase your sunburn risk

Did you know that certain medications can alter the effectiveness of your sunscreen?

Our very own Dr. Bradley Havins from the Touro University Nevada College of Osteopathic Medicine spoke with KTNV Channel 13 Action News about how medications and certain skin care products can make you more photosensitive. Summer time and medicine time don't always go well together. Some medications you're taking could make you photosensitive and more prone to sunburn.

We hope everyone is having a great Touro Tuesday! :)

In this edition of "Student Spotlight," we sat down with Julie Therien from the Touro University Nevada School of Physician Assistant Studies.

A 2nd-generation American, Julie grew up in Danville, Calif., a small town located in Northern California's East Bay. After graduating from UCLA with a degree in Psychobiology and a minor in Spanish, Julie applied to Touro to pursue her healthcare dreams.

“Touro is a community of like-minded people. We’ve all come from different paths but there’s a cohesiveness between our programs,” she said. “Touro is filling the need for more doctors and healthcare providers in Nevada. There is just a great energy here.”

Be sure to read the rest of Julie's incredible story!

Dr. Aurelio Lorico, Professor in the Touro University Nevada Department of Basic Sciences, was recently featured on this segment from KSNV News 3, Las Vegas about the issue and what you should do to protect yourself from the sun.
