Edward Via Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine – Virginia Campus

John Casey Turner

As a nontraditional student with a diverse educational and professional background, I had many ideals that were important for me to maintain while pursuing a career as a physician.  When I discovered the holistic and manual components of osteopathic medicine, I knew I had found my home. I grew up in rural Virginia and have devoted much of my energy to making it a better place, so VCOM was the perfect fit for me. VCOM believes in my roots and shares my mission of providing care to those most in need. My goal is to care for those in the most remote and underserved areas of the world. VCOM has provided me with the skills and confidence necessary to achieve my goals and has afforded me exceptional opportunities to experience rural underserved care and international medicine.”
