College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific

Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) see patients, prescribe medications, perform surgeries, and deliver babies in hospitals, medical centers, and offices across the United States and overseas. Whether they are primary care providers or specialists, DOs use all the standard tools of modern medicine, but also have additional therapeutic modalities with which to care for their patients.

Student Spotlight

Student of the Month Kiran Mazloom, DO 2021

May SDOMKiran embodies kindness, generosity, and hard work. She goes above and beyond at helping ensure her classmates are successful. For material that might be confusing, she creates phenomenal study guides that succinctly explain these concepts and shares them with the class. She is an outstanding student herself and takes time out of her day to help anyone else who might be struggling, whether it’s in class or in study groups. Her altruistic behavior is also seen in how much time she dedicates to serving Pomona’s underserved community at various clinics and community service projects. Kiran’s selfless and kind personality exemplifies that qualities of the COMP’s SDOM”

Christina Bohr has been named Student DO of the Year!

“I believe that Christina Bohr has all of the values and characteristics to be SDOY. In terms of leadership during her time at COMP she has taken on numerous leadership roles within clubs and currently is a senior OMM/NMM fellow. She is an excellent teacher who cares deeply about the success of her students. She is a role model to me in terms of being an educator and as a professional. She is the doctor that I hope to one day become. Christina is always trying to think of ways to give back to the university and find way to improve the education of COMP’s student, especially when it comes to osteopathic medicine. In fact she often gives workshops & lectures to impart her wisdom on the current preclinical students to help them not only thrive in the curriculum but also on rotations, and in their future practice. I believe that she makes a great candidate for SDOY”
