New medical school to open.

The Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine will open this fall in New York's Harlem neighborhood. The new school's mission is to serve minorities in the area, and school officials also plan to recruit medical students from among minority populations. The new facility is in the final stages of construction and is expected to be completed in April. School officials have already received 800 applications for the first class of 125 students. Officials also plan to hire 40 full-time faculty and 100 part-time faculty, as well as 200 physicians from New York City-area hospitals as adjunct faculty members.
