“I chose a career in osteopathic medicine because it allows me to explore my innate sense of scientific curiosity while having a meaningful impact on people’s lives. I learned a lot about osteopathic medicine by shadowing osteopathic physicians. What stood out to me was their concern with every patient’s quality of life – not just the resolution of their symptoms.

“I chose TUCOM for several reasons. The faculty members are approachable and committed to training us to be the best physicians we can be. The holistic approach is extended to the student body, particularly in the admissions process – prospective students are appreciated for their diverse backgrounds, not just their grades and exam scores. One of my favorite things about TUCOM is the camaraderie and cooperation among my peers. We recognize that we are on a journey together and help one another every step of the way.”
