Message from NUMSS (USA) Dean of Applied Clinical Sciences

As both a former student, faculty member and now dean, I can say that our school is among the finest in the world!

Welcome to National University of Medical Sciences (USA). I hope you are all excited to start your academic journey here with us.

I’m tremendously excited to be the new & first dean of the faculty of applied clinical sciences here at NUMSS (USA). I’ve been able to meet with many students in the last few months while teaching visceral techniques of osteopathy, and I’ve learned a lot about the challenges students face and their priorities and goals.

As we start the new semester, I want students to know that I share their commitment to research oriented health education and clinical practice and that I’m looking forward to working with each of you, the future NUMSS (USA) students.

We live in an exciting time. More people live longer than ever before. More patients are living with multiple, chronic, complex conditions. Delivering healthcare to these patients means we need to develop new approaches to clinical care and education.

As teachers we have a responsibility to embrace new ways of educating so our students can lead these exciting changes in healthcare. We need to take advantage of emerging communication technology to deliver outstanding online and on-campus health education. I’m encouraged by the quality and growth of activity in these areas across the Faculty.

Research delivers better health care. Our Faculty here at NUMSS (USA) has a long history of basing their lectures on topics proven through research and of translating this applied knowledge into clinical practice to help patients, and, working together, we can make sure that work continues.
I take pride in our future shaped by NUMSS (USA) leadership in the field of osteopathic manual practice - a future vested in the lives and careers of prospective students just like you. At the core of our mission is a commitment to constantly seek to improve what we do and strive to do our best. I look forward to continuing to promote our mission with you.

Testimonial from NUMSS DO student in Trinidad & Tobago

Hi Dr Pourgol, Just wanted to let you know I am enjoying your online classes, I like the fact that you use the skeleton and then the actual human patient, it really drives the point home, I especially like the Ethics and Clinical Management lectures, I thought they would be boring, but your personal experiences make it very inspiring. Thanks.

Dr Randy Nagir, ND (San Fernando, Trinidad & Tobago), 3rd semester National University of Medical Sciences (Spain) student - Doctor of Osteopathy program

Alumni Work Placement Campaign

We have started a campaign to introduce osteopathic manual practice to franchised clinics as well as multi location health clinics (rehabilitation, medical, chiropractic, massage therapy, and physiotherapy). This would open new work opportunities for our graduates.

We are starting this campaign with Canada, to be followed by USA and other countries.
This is another service to our students that makes them love their Alma Mater so much!
