Palomares day – a day full of workshops to show high school students what medical school is
like and some of the things there are to learn about medicine. Examples of stations to be included
are a suturing workshop and a demonstration of osteopathic manipulative medicine.

Mentorship day – a day of workshops put together for undergraduate students who are interested
in or who are in the process of applying to medical school. Workshops will include helping with
personal statement writing and mock interviews. Students who participate will be guaranteed an
interview for the DO program at COMP.

We hold the medical Spanish course curriculum for students to learn to communicate with
Spanish speaking patients in clinic. The class includes a medical Spanish handbook students can
use in clinic. We are currently working on getting our club involved in outreach clinics with the
Pomona Homeless Outreach Program at Western University.
