California Healthline

Plans for a new medical school in the Inland Empire have been largely met with praise from local officials eager for more doctors in the region. However, there is some uncertainty about the ambitious timeline for opening the new school. Dev GnanaDev — former president of the California Medical Association and founder, president and CEO of the proposed California University of Science and Medicine’s College of Medicine — said the school could open as early as 2016. Commonly referred to as Cal Med, the school’s first class would have 50 medical students and would later grow to 150.
