Touro University - Nevada College of Osteopathic Medicine


This is one of the newest colleges of Osteopathic Medicine and is the only one in Nevada. The school is located in Henderson, in the southeastern part of the valley adjacent to Las Vegas and close to McCarren International Airport. It is a branch of the samenamed school on Mare Island located in the San Francisco Bay area. The school occupies a 70,000square-foot remodeled facility. It aims to train osteopathic physicians who are committed to primary care and the holistic approach to the patient.


Students are taught the essential science and clinical science courses. These include anatomy, histology, microbiology, pathology, pharmacology, immunology, clinical skills, osteopathic principles and practice, doctor-patient communication, and courses that focus on each of the major systems of the body. Practice and problem solving are components of both classroom and clinic experience, but the school realizes there is a need for highly trained physicians in other specialties.
