Message from the Dean
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.
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 advanced technology and the ever-growing body of medical knowledge continue to move COMP and COMP-Northwest into a new era of medicine. more…
Student of the Month LANA WANG, DO 2022
“Lana is the perfect example of a student who deserves recognition for her work in service, leadership, and contribution to our class, the local community, and osteopathic profession. As our class vice-president, she has consistently advocated for 2022 by staying in constant communication with administration about the issues we faced, especially during these difficult rotation times. During her pre-clinical years, she was a co-president of PHOP who truly cared about the vulnerable homeless community that she served. Lana also shines as a strong female leader within OPSC who is actively working to implement protocols that encourage diversity at an institutional scale. She is an inspiration to her colleagues and a role model to the younger classes. Her behind-the-scenes work reflects her dedication to our class and should be recognized. Thank you for everything you do, Lana!”
