    Hey all,
    I am curious for information regarding how courses are taught at TUCOM. Do you use books at all, or mostly packets?
    With what frequency do you have exams/quizzes?
    Is it easy/encouraged to correspond with professors via email?
    Are questions encouraged during lecture, or even outside of class based solely on your interest in the material?
    Do you feel like the courses are taught directly for the boards?
    How much clinical exam skills do you get during the first year?

    Thank you very much,

    Toran

    I appreciate your post.
    Do you ask questions in class? If so, how do the teachers react to that sort of thing?
    Were you on the quarter system before? How do you like the semester system there at TUCOM compared to what you had in undergrad?
    Are the notes from power point comprehensive for the exams?
    Thanks,
    Toran

    I am really interested in learning more about this school. Please help out.
    I know what it's like to be in school, and these are some of the things that are important to me about medical school.
    Are you all on summer vacation still?

    Glorytaker,

    I just wanted to thank you for your posts. I am very interested in attending TUCOM because of its rising reputaton and location (I love living in the bay area). Is the curriculum organ based? How long are your lectures (ie: 8am - 5pm like Western?)? I'm planning on taking a tour there next month -- I've heard the facilities are awesome.

    Anyway, thanks again for telling us about Touro. :D
