California Health Sciences University has hit a significant milestone for its College of Osteopathic Medicine by receiving a coveted seven-year accreditation from the Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation.

This achievement marks a pivotal moment in the Clovis university’s journey toward establishing a robust medical education program, CHSU officials said.

“We are immensely proud to have earned this seven-year accreditation from COCA, which reflects the dedication and excellence of our medical school,” said Dr. John Graneto, Dean of the CHSU College of Osteopathic Medicine. “This recognition is a testament to the hard work of our faculty, staff, and students who have contributed to our success.”

COCA, which is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, is the accrediting body for colleges of osteopathic medicine nationwide.

Since its start in 2020, the CHSU College of Osteopathic Medicine has worked towards obtaining full accreditation. Its efforts are bolstered by state-of-the-art facilities.

CHSU recently celebrated its inaugural cohort of medical students from the class of 2024. Notably, 100% of these students were successfully matched to residency specialty programs.

The residency match results:
• 100% match rate achieved
• 65% of residencies in Primary Care
• 34% of residencies in the Central Valley
• 65 medical students set to graduate in May

Looking ahead, CHSU medical students will complete their training by passing final board licensing exams and embarking on residency programs across hospitals, clinics, and health centers. These experiences will equip them with the skills and expertise to practice independently in their chosen specialties.

CHSU will celebrate the graduation of its inaugural class of 2024 medical students at the Save Mart Center on Sunday, May 19, 2024.
