Rep. Calvert Congratulations UCR on Medical School Accreditation
Wednesday, October 03, 2012 -
Today Congressman Ken Calvert (R-CA) issued the following statement in response to the announcement that the University of California, Riverside received preliminary accreditation for the new medical school:
“Yesterday marked the culmination of many years of work by local, state and federal officials, in partnership with community and business leaders, to bring a medical school to UCR. I would like to thank UCR Chancellor Timothy White for his determination as well as Dr. G. Richard Olds, the dean of our new medical school.
“The new medical school will train much-needed health professionals to serve our area as well as encourage UCR, and other local college graduates, to pursue their medical degree here in the Inland Empire. I know all of us are proud of UCR and our community on this momentous occasion.”
UCR will be able to recruit students for the charter class of 50 medical students, enrolling in August 2013.
