2023-2024 TouroCOM-CA - Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine - California

This forum made possible through the generous support of SDN members, donors, and sponsors. Thank you.
Traditionally an accepted students Facebook page has been created by the student section of the admissions team, around late February to March. When one is created, the link will be posted here to join. You will need to send a screenshot to be admitted into the group, since it will be private. Normally the class also creates a discord that is managed by volunteers from the class itself, but that is usually right before the school year when most of the WL movement has subsided.
Hi, I was wondering if the Facebook group has been created.

Idk but I'm hoping so too, still waiting for interview. Someone in this thread earlier said they do interviews through the end of May.

They most certainly are. Look at previous year threads + consider that DO schools typically interview thru May or even later.

Those of us that were WL were informed that interviews go on through May because beginning in late May/early June, they start pulling from the WL. Keep your head up, you might get that II soon!

Anyone that was WL planning on sending an update letter? The email said 2 pages but I was wondering if 1 page will be sufficient, since I don't think Dr. Wagner and the rest of the admissions team would want to go through all of updates lol. Any insight from past students?
 
is the interview panel structured in a way where you don't have a 1on1 interview?
 
is the interview panel structured in a way where you don't have a 1on1 interview?
it's a group interview - 1 medical student, 1 faculty PhD interviewer, 1 MD interviewer. You are in a group with three or four other applicants and you get asked questions, sometimes personalized to you and sometimes addressed to everyone.

Of course! It's mostly a vibe check - pay attention to other people's answers and just demonstrate you are excited to interview there 😊 good luck
 
IS II yesterday! Surprised I still receive an interview at this point in the cycle. Can anyone let me know how long the actual panel interview is since the whole session is around 5 hours? Thank you!

Congrats! The panel interview was under an hour for sure, good luck!
 
Does anyone have a link to their match list from this year? I couldn’t find it

Apparently they don’t release the full list until sometime in May or June. But I did hear the match was really good, including anesthesia, derm, ortho, pathology, and radiology (there was even an ortho match at UCSF!) Common programs were Kaiser Sacramento, St. Joseph’s Stockton, UCSF Fresno, UCSF, UCLA, UCSD, and several out of state. Hope this helps!

Hugeeeeee achievement there! TOURO matches well into CA. Will be interesting to see what changes with the increased class size. CHSU's match list wasn't too bad either.
CHSU also received its 7-year accreditation status so big things are coming to their program too!

anyone know the time frame they would call for acceptances?
Hi, they usually don't call for acceptances; most forms of official communication and updates is through email and/or postal mail. For the time of the email update release, the timing may vary depending on how busy the admissions office is.

From what I recall, they only call applicants who are on the WL if they later on become accepted.

Hope this helps!

Could someone who attends/attended Touro CA please let me know about the quality of the clinical rotation sites? Is there a high patient volume? Is it common to have to drive far to attend different core rotations sites? How common is it to stay at one place?

I was told you could drive up to 60 miles

The second deposit is due on May 15th I believe. If you log into your Touro One portal and go to TUConnect, you will find a webpage with tons of information as well as a checklist of things to do before orientation. They just opened this page 2 days ago.

I am a fellow applicant, but I asked this question during the Touro talks/OMS1 panels/on interview day. Basically, Touro doesn’t have its own hospital. Rather that have contracts with various hospitals throughout California, with most of them being in Napa, Fairfield, Vallejo, Stockton area, Fresno area and some in Bakersfield. You get rotation locations based on a lottery system, so you might not always get the exact location you want. From what the current med students said, it sounds like it’s pretty typical to have to move around a few times in 3rd and 4th years for your rotations. Most of them said they move for their rotations as it is unlikely to get all of your rotations close to the Touro campus.

If any OMS’s or Adcoms are reading this and I said anything inaccurate, please correct me if I’m wrong.

This is Google-able information. Touro CA does not have its own hospital.

How often/intense are the exams at Touro?
first semester is often - like every week ish because you have anatomy running at the same time as fundamentals of medicine modules (which includes cell bio, immuno, biochem, etc.) the exams themselves are not that intense. There are anki decks made by past years and also google drives. On top of that, there are practice questions professors give. Also, it is pass fail! So definitely, doable.

they are behind this year due to fafsa changes. It won't come til May or June.
The school does not have grants or scholarships so just expect to either pay out of pocket or take out federal loans for the amount

Finding housing is not that difficult. There is always rooms for rent near campus or if you want more privacy there’s always a ton of apartments and studios for rent a little further from campus. I know people that were waitlisted that got housing pretty quickly. It’s not anything to really worry about.
