Message from the Dean
COMP-Northwest will continue the traditions started by COMP in 1977. We will train physicians for our future that will be capable of marshalling in a new era of medicine. Our students will become the health care leaders of tomorrow, utilizing the knowledge and technology available today to practice from the Pacific Northwest to all corners of the globe with purpose, passion and skill.
COMP-Northwest is the second medical school campus of the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific (COMP), which is the medical school of WesternU. COMP-NW operates from a 55,000-square-foot Medical Education and Research Building. More…
Giving to COMP-Northwest
For information about how to support COMP-NW, please contact COMP-Northwest’s Associate Director of Development Patti Daskalos (541) 259-0362 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
More and more people are making arrangements to donate their bodies each year to medical education after death. The gift this offers to humankind is immeasurable and is deemed “priceless” to our future doctors and researchers who through the hands-on experience gain knowledge that cannot be acquired by any other means.
For more information please contact Steven H. Carmichael, Director, Willed Body Donation Program (541) 259-0256 or email: email@example.com.
Club Day 2013
The 105 first-year students at the Western University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific-Northwest were welcomed at the convocation and white coat ceremony Saturday. The class of 2017 was given advice and words of encouragement by the different speakers at the event.
Jim Willis, retired director of the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs, gave a keynote speech.
Later this afternoon in Lebanon, the 105 students in the third class at the COMP-Northwest medical school will don, for the first time, the white medical coats that mark the start of their educational adventure.
The white-coat ceremony is a red-letter day, of course, for the students. But it’s a big day for Lebanon – and for the mid-valley as well.
Students at the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific-Northwest get to know each other through classes and study groups, but their significant others take a different approach.
On July 20, an airplane carrying 2008 Joseph High School graduate Corby Makin will leave Denver headed to the African nation of Kenya. Just now completing his first year of medical school at Western University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific Northwest, in Lebanon, Ore., Makin will volunteer 2 ½ weeks of his time at a hospital, rural clinic, and orphanage in or near the city of Dungona.
