“Achieving a 100% match rate for our inaugural medical students is extraordinary and we are so proud of these future physicians,”

John Graneto, DO, Dean of the College of Osteopathic Medicine.

In a nationwide process that is highly competitive, CHSU’s 65 medical students in the class of 2024 matched to a wide variety of residencies, including 34% located in the Central Valley.

After completing medical school and earning a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degree, CHSU medical students will need to pass a final board licensing exam. They will start a residency program in hospitals, clinics, and health centers to help them train for a specialty before practicing independently.

65% of the CHSU medical students will complete their residency in Primary Care, which includes family medicine, internal medicine, and pediatrics.

“With the critical shortage of Primary care physicians in the Central Valley and beyond, we are excited that 65% of our inaugural students matched in primary care residencies,”

Dr. Graneto
