The College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific is staffed by an outstanding group of dedicated health care professionals and support staff. Our daily efforts create the end product of our service:

TECHNICALLY COMPETENT, CULTURALLY SENSITIVE, PROFESSIONAL AND COMPASSIONATE PHYSICIANS

 

 

We, at the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific and COMP-Northwest, remain committed to ushering a new generation of osteopathic physicians who serve their patients with purpose, passion, and proficiency.

The faculty and staff at both campuses inspire a shared vision of a student-centered, inter-professional approach to learning with a meaningful emphasis on humanistic health care.  We strive to model the way for our students and alumni by being leaders in our profession, our communities, and in the realm of academia.  Today’s advance technology and the ever-growing body of medical knowledge continue to move COMP and COMP-Northwest into a new era of medicine.  A vigorous desire to heal combined with their strong medical education makes our students stand apart from the rest.

Our students thrive in a culture of patient-focused care because they practice on a foundation of professionalism, benevolence, and respect.  They understand that while they practice the art of medicine with their heads, they must never forget to use their hearts.
