Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine understands that the process of becoming an effective physician is a life-long pursuit forged through experience and continued education. Therefore, the training of an osteopathic medical student does not end after 4 years of formal education. The purpose of the Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine curriculum will be to educate students in the basic sciences, didactic clinical courses and the clinical experience.
This curriculum should form a basis or evaluation and management of those patients under their care as a foundation on which to build the social, communal, and political understandings that make a complete physician. Our curriculum also provides the student with the motivation for ceaseless self-development, so that our future physicians can enrich this basic knowledge throughout their careers and provide the best service to our patients and to society.
