What impressed you positively?

"The friendliness and enthusiasm shown by the students and staff. The facilities are good, clinical affiliations are strong, lecture tapes available, and lecture notes provided prior to lecture. The new curriculum frees up time for board studying. Studying for the boards is supplemented by coursework and faculty lectures. The clinical skills course prepares students to become great patient oriented physicians." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Reading the reviews on this website, I had mixed feelings about what to expect from the school. The Dean is pushing to make the school even stronger than it already is and he is trying to establish COMP as a strong OMM research school. I believe the school has a good curriculum with early clinical training and great clinical affiliations in the LA area. After visiting and hearing what the staff and students had to say, I am confident that COMP trains the best osteopathic physicians. There are MANY student organizations that bring a sense of community to the school. The students are also very involved in the community and work with underserved patients. The school also makes a decision within a week." Report Response
