Now Accepting Applications for Residency Program Funding
PHC is excited to announce a new grant program, CalMedForce, which awards approximately $40 million to primary care and emergency medicine residency programs in California.
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 Healthy California (PHC) to administer the annual $40 million in grants allocated from Proposition 56.
The deadline to submit your application is January 15, 2019, 11:59 pm (PST). You may save the application and continue to fill out the online application throughout the open application period. If there are remaining funds after all applications submitted on time are reviewed and awarded, late applications may be considered.
