It is with great pleasure that I announce Dr. John T. Pham has been appointed Vice Dean for COMP-Northwest.


Dr. Pham was one of the founding members of the COMP-Northwest faculty, serving as an integral part of the start-up team.  His roots in medical education in Oregon were planted when he began his residency training at Eastmoreland Hospital in Portland.  Dr. Pham was the Family Medicine Chief Resident, and later started his family medicine practice in Portland where he also actively served as a preceptor.  He has earned many recognitions and accolades throughout the years, including national recognition as the 2007 American Osteopathic Association Mentor of the Year, and currently serves as the pre-medical advisor for the Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons of Oregon. He has held numerous other leadership roles including President of the Northwest Osteopathic Medical Foundation.


Dr. Pham is an active participant in multiple local organizations including the Optimist Club, the Strawberrians, and six years as a Lebanon Ambassador of Goodwill. His community service and volunteer heart is well known throughout the state of Oregon.


Dr. Pham assumed the role of Vice Chair of the Department of Family Medicine in 2015 and has been the Chair of the COMP-Northwest Admissions Committee for the past four years. 

He succeeds Dr. Paul Evans, who has recently retired, with whom he worked closely over the past 18 months in preparation for this role.


I have every confidence in Dr. Pham and know he will work closely with the entire team to continue the proud heritage at COMP-Northwest and WesternU. Please join me in congratulating Dr. John T. Pham on his promotion.


With best regards,
