The CHSU College of Osteopathic Medicine (CHSU-COM) is the Valley’s new medical school. The inaugural cohort of 79 medical students matriculated in July 2020. Aligned with the University mission, the CHSU-COM hopes to recruit, train and retain physicians to serve the Central Valley of California, especially the underserved population.
The Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA) has found all standards and elements are met for CHSU-COM’s pre-accreditation status. Student recruitment for the CHSU-COM’s third cohort in the 2021-2022 application cycle is now open through AACOMAS, with an approved class size of 150 medical students.
