Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine

Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) see patients, prescribe medications, perform surgeries, and deliver babies in hospitals, medical centers, and offices across the United States and overseas. Whether they are primary care providers or specialists, DOs use all the standard tools of modern medicine, but also have additional therapeutic modalities with which to care for their patients. 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.

We inspire, in a humanistic tradition, technically competent, culturally sensitive, professional and compassionate physicians who become lifelong learners.

    Tony Eskandar, DO2027
    Student DO of the Month

    Tony Eskandar is the kind of student who will go out of his way to help anyone who may be struggling. There have been numerous times in anatomy where he has been so instrumental to me understanding the material. Without him I may not even have passed. He is always surrounded by people in anatomy lab, quizzing us to make sure that we understand the material. In addition to this, he regularly makes practice questions and other resources that he shares with everyone in the discord. Not only is he an excellent student and teacher but he is also passionate about important social issues outside of the classroom too. Tony is also super friendly and is always willing to be a support system to anyone. more…

    Faculty Spotlight
    Andrew Pumerantz, DO, MPH

    As Professor of Population Health Science, Internal Medicine, and Infectious Disease, Dr. Pumerantz has reached across disciplines and institutions to meld the fields of osteopathic medicine and public health for COMP and COMP-NW students. In 2021, he and his faculty colleagues from the public health program in the School of Community and Global Health at Claremont Graduate University (CGU) launched a uniquely designed DO/MPH Dual Enrollment Program that embodies population health science thinking. Professor Pumerantz designed the new dual enrollment program so that students could concurrently enroll in online MPH courses at CGU upon entering COMP and COMP-NW and then be able to complete both degrees in four years without the need to delay their timeline to residency. The dual enrollment program has enrolled more than 50 students since its inception and is forming its fourth cohort for this summer and fall. Continue reading the Pumerantz spotlight

We met at the romantic anatomy lab and grew to love one another while studying in the library 鈥 also, so very romantic!
