Western University of Health Sciences/College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific – Pomona, CA
Undergraduate Studies: BA in Human Biology, Pitzer College
“I decided to become an osteopathic physician because of the training we receive. I've worked with many attending physicians who graduated from WesternU/COMP. Many of them practice good evidence-based medicine, while treating the patient as their family. Medicine isn't an exact science, and the osteopathic principles that A.T. Still established many years ago still help guide us during this journey.
“My favorite part of WesternU/COMP are my classmates. I have never met individuals who are more passionate about medicine yet still know how to live a balanced lifestyle and have fun. I have been mentored by many individuals who are above me, and I have mentored students as well. Many WesternU/COMP students and alumni do not hesitate to help their younger colleagues. I believe that through this process of mentoring, WesternU/COMP physicians graduate with the foundation of helping others.”
