We are thrilled that medical training is launching this year at UC Merced! This fall we will welcome the inaugural class of the San Joaquin Valley PRIME+ BS to MD pathway. Students in the pathway will complete their Bachelor of Science (BS) at UC Merced over four years, and then complete their Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree at UC Merced and UCSF-Fresno over four years. UC Merced is accredited by the Licensing Committee on Medical Education to deliver medical education as a branch campus of the UCSF School of Medicine. UC Merced is committed to training diverse future health professionals prepared to serve their communities and promote health in the San Joaquin Valley.
