Touro College Osteopathic medical system includes three campuses located in California, Nevada, and New York:
Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine (TUCOM) was founded in San Francisco, CA in 1997 and graduated its charter class in 2001. It was the first Touro College osteopathic medical campus, as was one of the founding members of TUMEC. Now located on Mare Island in the northeast San Francisco Bay Area with 135 students per class, the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) accredited medical school provides significant support and leadership for TUMEC and endeavors to address the needs of its graduates who hail from every part of the United States.
Touro University Nevada College of Osteopathic Medicine (TUN) was founded in Henderson, NV in 2004, and graduated its charter class of 78 students in May, 2008. Over the past four years the college has grown to a class size of 135 per year. TUN is accredited by the AOA as a branch campus of TUCOM, however it functions independently with respect to curriculum, administration, and facilities. TUN has contributed greatly in the development of new postdoctoral training programs in the Las Vegas basin, and continues to work with potential new partners for program creation.
Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine (TCOM) is the newest campus, founded in 2007. Located in Harlem, New York, the school entered its first training class in 2008. Current efforts are underway to develop new associations with teaching hospitals in the region for development of further postdoctoral training programs.
