Program History:

California Health Sciences University was founded in 2012 and is the first university of its kind in the Central Valley. Envisioned by the Assemi family, CHSU offers a local option for students and health care professionals seeking doctoral and post-graduate programs and to help remedy the shortage of health care services offered in the Valley. Students can enjoy the unique combination of high quality of life, affordable cost of living, and plentiful career opportunities the Valley provides. The College of Osteopathic Medicine is the first 4-year medical school in the region and the third College of Osteopathic Medicine in California.

CHSU plans to open up to 10 post-graduate colleges to train health care professionals in the coming years. The timing and specific discipline for each new school will be determined based on the need and opportunity for job placement within the region.
