COMP-Northwest Welcomes 105 New Students
Date:8/3/2013

LEBANON, Ore. (PRWEB) August 03, 2013

New osteopathic medical students were urged to find balance in work and life at the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific-Northwest’s third annual Convocation and white coat ceremony Saturday, Aug. 3, 2013 in Lebanon, Ore.

The ceremony, at Lebanon First Assembly of God Church, welcomed 105 new students to Western University of Health Sciences’ Oregon campus.

Keynote speaker Jim Willis, retired director of the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs, drew on his years of military and police service in addressing the students and their families. For many years he trained new recruits for the Oregon State Police, and the basis of this training was pride, loyalty and dedication.

"It is a pride that is not arrogance. It is a loyalty that is earned, both from you and to you by the people with whom you work," Willis said. "And the dedication to understand that what you are doing is a career that you own from the time you begin this medical school to the time that title is conferred on you. You are going to own your career."

He anticipates a strong relationship between COMP-Northwest and the Oregon veterans home under construction nearby.

"We hope that this home will offer you the opportunity to interact with the residents in a learning environment," Willis said. "Remember that we work where they live, not the other way around. They come first. It’s their home."

Some veterans and their spouses are at a point in their lives when they speak bluntly and to-the-point.

"I encourage you to use the opportunity at the Oregon veterans home that I hope will come in the next several years to establish the ability to meet people with different personalities, and in all different states of anxiety who really want to be better," Willis said. "They want the quality of their life to be as good as it
