    What's the cheapest insurance plan in NorCal? The student insurance plan from Touro looks pricey.

    You'd have to check the marketplace in CA. I don't know for sure what it is but I'll bet it's a rip off unless we qualify for Medicaid without any income source.
    All I can offer is that Touro's plan is cheaper than keeping what my work offers and paying the full share.
    Just figured I'd write since its been pretty quiet on the subject. Sorry I can't add much

    Are any of you planning on getting the MPH? If so, what do you plan on doing with it?

    DRUG SCREEN:

    Hey TUCOM-CA 2020! Can anyone find recent info about whether there is an initial drug screen?

    The language in the acceptance Response Form implies there is an initial drug screen. But it's vague, like they put in general language that they can use for Nursing and Pharmacy too. It reads, “I consent to submit to a background check and drug screen prior to or during my enrollment… The cost of the first background check and drug screen will be borne by Touro University.”

    According to the old AACOMAS 2009 osteopathic medical college information book (CIB),
    “TUCOM-CA does not require drug testing prior to matriculation. Some rotation sites, however, may require students to pass such a test prior to commencing their rotations.” The 2016 CIB does not give school-specific info about drug testing.

    Please help!

    I had the same concerns.

    I'm going to Touro this fall and have been assured there is no initial screen.

    Hi, at the risk of having a duh moment or why-didn't-you-pay-attention moment but were we supposed to register for our classes already? If so, how do we pick our classes in the TouroOne portal? If not, when do we register or is it done for us?
