Dear TUC Alumni, 

It was wonderful meeting some of you at the annual Osteopathic Medical Education Conference (OMED) in San Diego earlier this month. The AOA/OMED alumni reception held at the Tipsy Crow was a huge success and a lot of fun (TUCOM Alumni photo below). Thank you for stopping by the Touro booth; It was great to catch up and hear the wonderful things our alums are doing in their communities!

It always amazes me on how our alums continue to volunteer their time well after graduation – we have an incredible group! By helping nonprofits to mentoring our students, TUC alums are a stand out bunch and set the example of serving, leading and teaching. If you would like to mentor one of our students (and they’re anxious to meet you!), please visit: for more information and to sign up.


Thank you for all you do!

“You can really see the outcomes,” said Dr. Poquiz. “You’re with that patient through different time points, and you see their improvement. I’m glad that Touro allowed us to have two years of rotations to see all the possibilities of being a pharmacist. Beyond the counter, I was exposed to all aspects of pharmacist work. I definitely thank Touro for that.”

Pujah Khana

Puja Khana, PharmD, wasn’t always set on becoming a pharmacist. In high school, she thought she wanted to be a physical therapist instead.

Devastated, Dr. Khana put her career plans completely on hold.
