Do we need another medical school?
Sacramento Business Journal

California needs more doctors and a new medical school in Elk Grove will help address that need, local health-care leaders say. This need — and opportunity — created a buzz when California Northstate University College of Medicine announced Thursday it got the key accreditation it needed to launch classes in September.

While reaction to the for-profit status of the new school is mixed, everybody who weighed in on the news applauded the plan churn out more doctors. California Northstate is now accepting applications and hopes to enroll up to 60 students in the next two months.
