The recently founded UC Riverside School of Medicine has been accredited for its first residency program that will bring eight medical residents to the Coachella Valley by July 2015, the university announced Thursday.

The new program was accredited by the national Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education in late January.

In partnership with Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs, the three-year medical residency program will bring residents to train at Desert Regional and the UCR Health Family Medicine Center just beside the hospital.
