"Very friendly and close knit group of students,a DO orthopedic surgeon will be starting research in a new building in the back of the school, 6000 people coming to Vegas monthly creating a need for physicians, students get out around 12pm Fridays, the faculty being very helpful and accomodating" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the school is tucked away in a business park but its not too bad. the first thing they told me was, "Wow, your GPA is high!" but I have a 3.6...i thought that was average. the two interviewers ran out of questions to ask me...oh, they really emphasize that they would like students to stay in Vegas after they graduate because of the doctor shortage." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"We were greeted by students while waiting in the lobby before the start of the day. They were really friendly and eager to chat with us. Mr. Corbman was really nice too. The facilities are nice. I was impressed with the clinical exam rooms, anatomy lab (well ventilated!), wireless all over the campus. There is no cafeteria because all they can serve is Kosher food. The library may appear as if its lacking many things because there are a few books and many computers inside; but if you think about it, everything is going electronic anyway. Because its a new school they are still developing their rotations as well as many other things. I asked if they are going to have research opportunities after the first year during the summer but they said "we are in the process of talking with UNLV." Also, as a pioneering student you can set up new clubs and organizations considering there are only a couple as of this time. THe facultly really listen to the students and help them with their requests. The incoming class is going to be 100 (versus 77 of the first class). If you like a school that is new, has a small class size, and all that jazz, Touro NV is a good choice. Of course, you won't know exactly how well they will prepare you on boards and what hospitals will think about you when interviewing for residencies considering you went to a new school. So with all choices you wil make its a gamble! (no pun intended)" Report Response
