A Success Story

The California University of Science and Medicine (CUSM) welcomed its inaugural class of 64 future physicians in July 2018, partnering with Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC) and Prime Healthcare Foundation. The medical school, known as CalMed, was conceived by Dr. Prem Reddy and Dr. Dev GnanaDev to address the shortage of physicians in the Inland Empire and scarcity of medical school slots in California. Currently operating out of the former Everest College building, CUSM’s permanent campus will be constructed adjacent to ARMC and should be ready by July 2020. Community-focused partnerships allow CalMed to make connections between academic medicine and the surrounding community to improve health outcomes for area residents. When CalMed reaches its full capacity, it will have close to 500 medical students and hundreds of allied health students. This will result in over a billion dollars in economic benefit to our community over a decade.
