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.

The College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific is staffed by an outstanding group of health care professionals and support staff. Our daily efforts create the end product of our service: Technically Competent, Culturally Sensitive, Professional and Compassionate Physicians.

Congratulations Jonathan Briganti, DO 2019!!! Here is what his classmates and peers had to say:
“Jonathan Briganti is by far one of the most selfless and kind-hearted individuals I’ve ever met. Hands down, he is the most generous classmate in my class. Jon will consistently and effortlessly sacrifice his own time and energy to help anyone and everyone. From providing interactive guidance to 1st years as an ECM TA and readily giving up his weekend to teach the 1st years in the anatomy lab, to serving as member of SGA 2019, Jonathan absolutely deserves recognition as Student D.O. of the Month.”
