Admissions Timeline (2023-2024)

Welcome Applicants! Thank you for your interest in our School of Medicine. The MD program at California University of Science and Medicine (CUSM -SOM) offers a system-based curriculum where the basic science disciplines are taught in the context of clinical presentations. This allows the student to see first hand how the basic sciences are linked to the practice of medicine.

To this end, candidates who have keen observational skills, are logical, possess comprehensive analytical abilities, compassion, integrity, and good interpersonal skills are strongly encouraged to apply. In order to assess the personal qualities of applicants, CUSM-SOM utilizes a holistic review system in the admission review process.
