UC Riverside Medical School gets $25 million, can double size

The school’s largest building now fits 80 students, which is part of the reason the number of incoming students has grown only from 50 the first year to 77 in 2020. Plans are ready for a new, larger building that should be complete by 2023, Deas said.

The funding will also allow the school to hire more full-time faculty and staff and purchase additional state-of-the-art equipment for classrooms and the simulation center.

Senator Richard Roth, Assemblyman Jose Medina and Assemblywoman Sabrina Cervantes, all Democrats based in Riverside, sponsored the increased funding.
