Why Choose Us

We are committed to delivering an educational experience to ensure the student’s goal of becoming a confident and skillful physician. The curriculum at the College of Medicine is based on Clinical Presentations (CPs); symptoms or conditions that cause patients to seek the help of a physician. Examples include “sore throat”, “headache” or “chest pain”. At the College of Medicine, basic science, clinical knowledge, clinical reasoning, ethics training, hands-on learning of medical skills, and participation in patient care at our Sacramento-area affiliate hospitals and clinics will help our students become patient-centered, confident leaders in medicine.
