"I could not be more pleased with my medical education at WesternU/COMP.  WesternU/COMP is giving me the opportunity to develop the skills and build the confidence to treat patients with the osteopathic philosophy—to address not only the patient’s physical ailment, but their spiritual and psychological well-being as well. I am constantly impressed with the passion of the deans, faculty, and staff; they never cease to motivate and inspire the students. My fellow students are ones with whom I am proud to be working. From their friendly smiles to their small words of motivation, they are representative of future physicians who embody respect for human dignity, pursuit for professional achievement, and a positive attitude toward teamwork. It is reassuring that future patients will be provided with excellent care. WesternU/COMP is preparing me to become a competent physician, and a caring, compassionate, lifelong learner with a distinctive osteopathic philosophy."
