The California University of Science and Medicine in Colton has awarded degrees to 140 students in this year’s graduating class.
The degrees – doctor of medicine and masters in biomedical science – were presented May 20 during a ceremony at the Fox Theater in Riverside, according to a statement.
All of the graduates have received a residency match, and 33 percent of those will fulfill their residency – the final step in obtaining a medical license – in the Inland Empire.
“As you embark on your journey in medicine, one of the most honorable professions, always remember the humanity at the core of medicine,” said Dr. Prem Reddy, founder of the school of science and medicine, during the ceremony.
Reddy also founded Ontario-based Prime Healthcare, which operates 45 hospitals and more than 300 outpatient offices in 14 states.
The school of science and medicine enrolled its first medical class in 2018. It now has 422 students and four medical doctor programs, according to the statement.
