Touro University Nevada College of Osteopathic Medicine (TUNCOM) is the only osteopathic medical school in Nevada.

Touro University Nevada College of Osteopathic Medicine (TUNCOM) prepares students to become outstanding osteopathic physicians, physician assistants and scientists. The college provides students with the most current biomedical information and supporting biomedical research. Each student uses the knowledge from his or her discipline to make evidence–informed decisions in the context of the complex situations encountered in the professional world. Faculty emphasizes primary care and a holistic approach to the patient. The college serves its students and society through innovative education, research and community service.

Mission: The Mission of Touro University Osteopathic Medicine Program is to prepare students to become outstanding osteopathic physicians who uphold the values, philosophy and practice of osteopathic medicine and who are committed to primary care and the holistic approach to the patient. The program advances the profession and serves its students and society through innovative pre-doctoral and post-doctoral education, research, community service, and multidisciplinary and osteopathic clinical services.

Our PA19 students are hosting a book drive from June 10th – July 19th for "Turn Around" schools in the Clark County School District. These schools have been underperforming academically and need additional support and resources to return to academic excellence.

A donation box will be placed in the Rainbow Room near the café. We are collecting gently used books for Kindergarten through 12th grade. These books will be used for classroom libraries in underperforming schools to help improve literacy rates for the future of Las Vegas!

Thank you for your support!

The Clark County Medical Society hosted their 65th Annual Board Installation Dinner & Awards Ceremony this past Saturday. TUNCOM student Ashlie Bloom was honored with the Student Rising Star Award in recognition of academic excellence. Congratulations, Ashlie!

Congratulations to our second-year students who recently completed their end-of-year capstone event where they practiced venipuncture, mock OR, mock ER/sterile procedures, scrub/gown/glove training, suturing and more!

The mock operating and emergency rooms were co-hosted with the College of Southern Nevada and held inside Touro's Michael Tang Regional Center for Clinical Simulation.

What an amazing experience for our students to perfect their skills and prepare for their third year of medical school!

How I lost 90 pounds in under a year in residency - The DO

"I’ve always been a person of routine, a person who follows systems and methods. In medical school, I arrived early. In residency, I arrive to work early. I go through things at work with precision and consistency and discipline. Now I apply those skills to my personal life."

Here is an inspirational story about a neurosurgery resident who lost 90 lbs. during his final year of residency. Hours on my feet as a neurosurgeon and the aches and pains from extra weight forced me to make major lifestyle changes.

We are excited to share that our very own Dr. Paul Rennie, Professor and Chair of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM), was named President-Elect of the American Academy of Osteopathy (AAO)!

After spending a year as president-elect, Dr. Rennie will become the 2020-21 president of the AAO, the nation’s largest medical society devoted to fostering neuromusculoskeletal medicine and osteopathic manipulative medicine (NMM/OMM).

Congratulations, Dr. Rennie!

Happy Friday everyone! Today we are featuring Lauren Price for #MyTUNStory
“Hi! I’m Lauren and I am a first year DO student at Touro. I was born and raised in New Orleans, LA. I attended Louisiana State University (LSU) for undergrad and majored in Petroleum Engineering.
I liked Petroleum Engineering, but I always knew I wanted to be a physician.”
“My own struggles with scoliosis reinforced what I learned in engineering - structure is everything! And medicine tells you that structure dictates function. I can’t wait to be part of a medical team in the future that helps others regain structure, and ultimately, health.”
“TUN was my first choice in medical school because of its promise to always put students first, its Judeo-Christian values, and location. Since starting in August, I’ve met some of my best friends and plenty of helpful role models!”
“After TUN, I hope to serve the Southern Nevada community as a family medicine physician, gastroenterologist, or pathologist.”
