Western University of Health Sciences (College of Pharmacy)

The founding institution, the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific (COMP), was established in 1977 as a direct and important response to a critical shortage of primary care physicians in the western United States. Philip Pumerantz, PhD, accepted the invitation of the college's board of directors to become the founding president in September of 1977. In January 1978, COMP received pre-accreditation status from the American Osteopathic Association. Provisional accreditation status was achieved in July of 1978 and full accreditation in February 1982. In August of 1996, in order to better reflect its stature, COMP was restructured into a university with a new name: Western University of Health Sciences. The College of Pharmacy also welcomed its charter class into the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program at that time. This program was the fourth college of pharmacy to be established in the State of California and prepares students in a humanistic, interdisciplinary tradition to become competent, qualified professionals. Graduates of Western University's College of Pharmacy complement other health care team members by offering their expertise in comprehensive drug therapy management.
