“I chose osteopathic medicine because I wanted to know how to apply different modalities of medicine. Having a better understanding of the body as a whole, and how each system affects the others, is vital for a health care practitioner’s understanding of pathology and treatment.

“TUNCOM’s faculty makes you feel like you’re a part of the family. They are always willing to help you. I was particularly interested in TUNCOM because of the shortage of physicians in Clark County. Being at the only medical school in southern Nevada, students have the ability to be on the front line of primary health care, which I find exciting.

“My DO school is a perfect fit for me. By being in a diverse school with ample opportunities, I have the ability to serve the needs of my community with the assistance of TUNCOM’s caring staff.”
