California Health Sciences University (CHSU) is proud to announce that our College of Osteopathic Medicine (COM) now has approval to accept applications from students for Osteopathic Medical school!

“We are exceedingly proud to hold the distinction of being the first, 4-year medical school in the Valley,” exclaimed Dr. John Graneto, Dean of the CHSU College of Osteopathic Medicine. “We are now recognized as the 3rd Osteopathic Medical school in California and students can apply to our program starting May 3, 2019, when the application cycle opens.”

 Our College of Osteopathic Medicine at CHSU is the thirty-fifth in the Nation.

The CHSU College of Osteopathic Medicine will admit 75 students in our program the first year with the total student body growing to 600 students in the program at one time.

CHSU will accept medical school applications beginning May 3, 2019 through the AACOMAS website, hosted by the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine.

Construction of our new CHSU campus is underway and the College of Osteopathic Medicine building will be the first to be completed in time for classes to begin in July 2020.

Check out the latest drone and time lapse construction progress here.

The new three-story, state-of-the-art College of Osteopathic Medicine building has an expansive, 21,000 sq.ft. Simulation and OSCE Lab, Clinical Skills Lab, and two large classrooms designed for our team-based learning curriculum.

We have also designed a Teaching Kitchen to ensure our students and patients understand how to prepare healthy meals and the importance of proper diet in relation to good health.

Osteopathic medicine had its genesis in holistic care and now boasts an impressive track record of producing primary care physicians.

The next step in COCA accreditation comes in fall 2019 with a comprehensive site visit once our new medical school building is nearer to completion.

We encourage Valley students, physicians, and other partners to join us in our mission to remedy the deficit of health care providers in our community and help fulfill the medical needs of local families, especially the underserved population. For more information, visit osteopathic.chsu.edu.
