Student Experience California

The Pomona location offers students an abundance of activities. From exploring Los Angeles and the scenic Pacific Coast with its pristine beaches to enjoying the vibrancy of Los Angeles, COMP students find many activities to help them relax and have fun when they are not studying. The Los Angeles area and the City of Pomona offers an opportunity to live and learn in an urban environment. Our faculty and students connect and care for diverse communities – one patient at a time.

Who Are We?

Our students are authentic, humble, team players and collaborators. We are brave, enthusiastic, and curious. We are united in our heartfelt care for each and every patient we serve.
