Do you hear your name at the end? Did you always want to be a physician?
Becoming a physician isn't easy. It takes years of study and hard work. It's a demanding profession with long hours and life-and-death decisions. But there are rewards.
Medicine is about helping people. Physicians provide advice and reassurance, examine symptoms, and consider a range of diagnoses. It requires an inquisitive mind, the ability to acquire and maintain high levels of knowledge and the ability to relate to a wide variety of people.
There are more than 60 different specialties in the field of medicine. The training you go through gives you an opportunity to discover what field appeals to you. Approximately 60 percent of all DOs choose to practice in primary care disciplines of family practice, general internal medicine and pediatrics.
Touro University Nevada offers a doctor of osteopathic (DO) medicine. Osteopathic physicians are trained to work in partnership with their patients and look at the whole person. Osteopathic medical students also learn the art of osteopathic manipulative medicine, a system of hands-on techniques that help alleviate pain, restore motion and influence the body's structure to help it function more efficiently.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2010-2011 Edition, employment of physicians and surgeons is projected to grow 22 percent from 2008 to 2018. In addition to job openings from employment growth, numerous openings will result from the need to replace the relatively high number of physicians and surgeons who are expected to retire over the 2008-18 decade.
Touro University Nevada offers students a variety of ways to engage in the life of the university. Student organizations, service projects, intramural competitions, and interesting activities help students make new friends and maintain life balance.
TUN provides fitness equipment, a bookstore, gymnasium and student lounges so that you can conveniently enjoy your admittedly limited "free time."
We also have a great library, wireless access, computer labs, and study rooms to support the time you devote to reading and study.
The campus is security-patrolled and the state-of-the-art building is accessible to students from 6:00 a.m. until 2:00 a.m. most days.
