Western University of Health Sciences (WesternU) has hired Raymond Hruby,

DO, as chairman of the department of osteopathic manipulative medicine in

the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific.

Dr. Hruby comes to WesternU from the College of Osteopathic Medicine at

Michigan State University, where he chaired that school’s department of

osteopathic manipulative medicine. Previously, from 1985-1990, he operated

a private practice in La Jolla, California. During that time he also

served as an associate clinical professor for WesternU.

“”When I was a clinical professor I always had fun coming to the campus to

teach the students, and when I came back recently to visit the campus I

was very impressed by how the University had developed,”” Dr. Hruby

said. “”The opportunity to work here again was one that I couldn’t pass up;

I’m very excited by the growth WesternU has seen.””

Dr. Hruby earned his bachelor’s in psychology from Saint Vincent College

in Pennsylvania; his osteopathic medical degree from the College of

Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery in Des Moines, Iowa; and a master’s in

computer science from West Coast University in San Diego, California. He

is a member of the American Osteopathic Association, the Cranial Academy

and the American Academy of Osteopathy. He has served as a guest lecturer

at conferences in more than 10 states.

Foreign languages, sailing and jazz music are among Dr. Hruby’s interests.

He resides in Alta Loma with his wife, Karen, a former legislative analyst.
