Our Mission

Physicians For A Healthy California (PHC) is dedicated to improving community health, growing a diverse physician workforce and promoting health equity.

Graduate Medical Education

In 2016, the California Medical Association, California Hospital Association, and Service International Employees Union-United Healthcare Workers West sponsored Proposition 56. Prop. 56 was approved by voters and allocates $40 million of funding towards Graduate Medical Education (GME) to sustain, retain, and expand California residency positions in primary care and emergency medicine. All accredited residency programs in the state meeting the guidelines set forth in Proposition 56 are eligible to apply for funding.

The University of California is the designated recipient of the funding and has contracted with Physicians for a Health California (PHC) to administer the annual $40 million in grants allocated from Proposition 56. PHC would like to gather basic information as it begins the process of developing guidelines for an application process.

Application and eligibility criteria are currently being developed. If you have feedback or input you would like to provide, please contact us at staff@phcdocs.org.
