Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine is advanced in its approach and dedication to using digital tools to teach clinical skills.

In addition to a required Medical Simulation class for second year students, Touro utilizes simulation throughout the entire medical school experience, incorporating it in many courses. The content is developed by TouroCOM-NY and utilizes high-fidelity manikin simulations, task trainers, and standardized patients for training and assessment of students in areas such as patient care, critical thinking, clinical decision-making, teamwork, communication, and medical procedures.
