Osteopathic Medicine (COM) Program

Message from the Dean

Welcome to the first four-year medical school in the Central Valley. CHSU is proud to have developed the third osteopathic medical school in California.

Our mission to recruit, train, and retain physicians for the Central Valley, helps improve access to health care for all in the area. As part of that mission, you will become an integral member of the team that impacts patients’ lives throughout your four years here.

I am personally excited that you chose us on your path towards becoming a compassionate and caring physician. Unique aspects of the curriculum included an emphasis on nutrition, use of innovative technologies, incorporating use of simulation, an emphasis on improved student learning with Team-Based learning and other active modalities and opportunities for impactful early clinical experiences.

Together we will make an historic impact on health care access to the residents of the Central Valley.

John Graneto, DO
Dean, College of Osteopathic Medicine
