Dr. Robert B. Goldberg, dean of Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine (TouroCOM) in New York, has announced the appointment of Joseph R. Maldonado, Jr., M.D., MBA, DipEBHC to the post of assistant clinical dean.
“Our entire medical school community, including our Clinical Dean Dr. Zebulon Taintor, is excited and enthusiastic about having Dr. Maldonado join our clinical education team,” said Dean Goldberg. “Dr. Maldonado is committed to helping TouroCOM meet its mission of increasing the number of underrepresented minorities in medicine, and to help us achieve excellence in clinical medicine.”
New York’s first new medical school in nearly three decades, TouroCOM opened in Harlem in fall 2007 with a mission to improve medical care in the Harlem community, increase the number of underrepresented minorities in medicine, and to train physicians committed to practicing primary care medicine in underserved communities such as Harlem. Currently over 500 students are pursuing the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) degree at TouroCOM, a four-year program that provides solid foundations in basic and clinical sciences, along with the opportunity to learn skills that best serve patients, their families, and society.
