About California Health Sciences University
California Health Sciences University was founded in 2012 and is the first university of its kind in the Central Valley. Envisioned by the Assemi family, CHSU offers a local option for health care professionals seeking doctoral and post-baccalaureate education programs and to help remedy the shortage of health care services offered in the Valley. Students can enjoy the unique combination of high quality of life, affordable cost of living and plentiful career opportunities the Valley provides. The College of Pharmacy was the first program offered because of the demand for pharmacists in the region. CHSU plans to open up to 10 post-graduate colleges to train health care professionals in the coming years. The timing and specific discipline for each new school will be determined based on the need and opportunity for job placement within the region.
Located in Clovis, California, CHSU benefits from proximity to community health care providers and complementary programs at California State University, Fresno, Fresno Pacific University and UCSF-Fresno, creating venues for inter-institutional collaboration. Plans are underway for the 60 acre permanent campus in Clovis, California. At fu...ll build out, the campus can support the approximately 2,000 future health care professionals and will also support economic development in the region, with over 300 employees, mostly faculty, and up to 500 graduating health care professionals per year, who will be encouraged to remain and practice in the Valley.
CHSU is committed to active learning and embraces the approach called “team-based learning” (TBL) as the foundational strategy for didactic classes. TBL actively involves students in their learning (through pre-class study and preparation), problem-solving (solving problems presented as case scenarios), critical thinking and decision-making (developing alternative explanations and proposals, then choosing the best one). TBL encourages individual accountability (preparation for class and contribution to team assignments), team collaboration, and the elevation of knowledge by applying fundamental concepts to disciplinary problems that are solved in the classroom. Other active-learning approaches are used if a different format is indicated for the type of learning being pursued. These include guided inquiry, workshops, laboratories, projects, presentations, and experiences.
