The strength, progress, and stability of a country depend upon the health of its people. To ensure this, we need strong, caring, well-educated healthcare professionals. The commitment of California Northstate University College of Medicine (CNUCOM) is to help meet our nation’s need for physicians. Our goal is to educate students who will be relentless in pursuit of answers to difficult medical questions, and whose response to the concerns of their patients is sincere and profound.
Our commitment is to excellence and innovation in medical education. Beginning on the first day of medical school, the student will be learning to think as a physician. The curriculum has been carefully developed with an incorporation of basic sciences into the foundation of clinical medicine through the use of the clinical presentations of disease. Students will explore medical problems as well as their scientific rationale within courses organized around organ systems such as the cardiovascular, pulmonary, renal system and others. The clinical presentations, introduced at the beginning of each week, will be reinforced with experiences in the simulation center and in the process of solving clinical cases. Finally, clinical clerkships and electives will provide our students a real-life experience of working with diverse patient populations with our clinical educational partners in the community.
We have assembled a dynamic and dedicated group of MD, PhD and MD/PhD biomedical educators with expertise in Anatomy, Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Immunology, Microbiology, Neuroscience, Pathology, Physiology and Pharmacology as well as clinical disciplines. We are committed to maintaining an academic culture that respects diversity, encourages social accountability, and fosters compassion to change our medical students into professionals who will be leaders in healthcare. Graduates who enter the medical world from California Northstate University College of Medicine will be role models in the practice of medicine.
