Western University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific (COMP) alumnus Jason Wei, DO ’17, was on a pediatric rehabilitation rotation at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) when it went into lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.

Title IX is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. The law also pertains to cases of sexual harassment and sexual assault. Under the Violence Against Womens Act (VAWA), WesternU is required to provide training on Title IX/VAWA to our incoming students. In years past, incoming students were required to complete an initial full-length training related to Title IX upon matriculation in the Fall. Additionally, continuing students were required to complete an annual Title IX training in the Spring as a reminder of the rules and regulations.
In May 2020, the Department of Education issued significant changes to the Title IX laws which are effective on August 14, 2020. Given the nature of these changes, all students will be required to complete the Everfi Sexual Assault Prevention: Graduate Student training module regardless if they recently completed the on-going training in Spring 2020.
