    I am inquiring on behalf of my cousin who is applying to the Texas schools and likes TCOM. How is TCOM regarded among osteopathic schools? How is there hospital/clinical/facilities etc. Any positive or negative comments are welcome, we are just trying to get a feel for it, you know.

    I believe that TCOM is widely regarded as one of the better osteopathic schools. It is a health science center, does some research, and has affiliatons with several hospitals and clinics in Fort Worth and other cities. Honestly, I have not yet heard any negative reports on TCOM. I chose to go there even though I was accepted and could have gone to an allopathic school. My personal opinion in choosing a med school is that you can't choose a bad school in Texas...it comes down to your personal preference and experience during the interview process. Have your cousin email me if he wants more info...I'm starting at TCOM in a couple of weeks and have shadowed students and graduates of TCOM.
