Graduate Medical Education
PHC is excited to announce a new grant program, CalMedForce, which will award 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.
Application and eligibility criteria are currently being developed. The application will be released by December 12, 2018 and will be due in January 2019. Funding decisions will be made in January 2019. Please continue to visit our website for additional information.
