Message from the Dean
COMP-Northwest will continue the traditions started by COMP in 1977. We will train physicians for our future that will be capable of marshalling in a new era of medicine. Our students will become the health care leaders of tomorrow, utilizing the knowledge and technology available today to practice from the Pacific Northwest to all corners of the globe with purpose, passion and skill.
WE EMBRACE Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Western University of Health Sciences’ College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific and COMP-Northwest have taken a multi-tiered approach to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), evaluating and modifying curriculum, recruitment, leadership development, fundraising and research. COMP established an Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), and the College’s curriculum is proactively being reviewed to examine implicit bias, explore social determinants of health outcomes and empower future physicians to be effective advocates for their patients. COMP’s DEI Council, comprised of faculty, staff and students, provides oversight and influence in all curriculum, culture and processes for the College. This DEI effort is two-pronged. Learn more

Willed Body Donation Program
More and more people are making arrangements to donate their bodies each year to medical education after death. The gift this offers to humankind is immeasurable and is deemed “priceless” to our future doctors and researchers who through the hands-on experience gain knowledge that cannot be acquired by any other means.
For more information please contact Michael Osborne, Director, Willed Body Donation Program (541) 259-0256 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
