Chaminade University and Western University of Health Sciences this spring signed a linkage agreement on Western University’s Pomona campus. The agreement paves the way for Chaminade students to become College of Dental Medicine (CDM) students. This is Chaminade’s fourth agreement with WesternU.  In addition to this new Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.D.M.) degree agreement, Chaminade also has agreements with WesternU for three other degrees: Doctor or Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.), Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (D.P.M.) and Doctor of Physical Therapy (D.P.T.).

The Office of Health Professions Advising and Undergraduate Research helped coordinate the agreement and is dedicated to helping students seek advanced academic opportunities that enhance their educational experience at Chaminade. The Office provides students with information and advising about careers they may wish to pursue after graduation, guidance for planning their academic and professional timeline, and expertise to strengthen their applications to their desired program of study. It also provides a variety of services for students interested in pursuing careers in the health professions or research, regardless of their major. Services include: advising, test preparation, summer programs, guest speaker presentations, professional seminars, community service activities, and internship/shadowing opportunities.
