Area(s) of Interest: GME Funding Physician Workforce Primary Care
Physicians for a Healthy California (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. The application is now open and is due January 15, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. (PST). Priority will be given to programs in medically-underserved areas and/or programs who serve medically underserved populations.
Programs that plan to apply for funding should not wait until the last minute to complete the application. While the application itself isn’t long, it may take some time to collect and prepare the required information. Among the information needed is:
- Health professional shortage area (HPSA) Score
- Plans for future expansion of residency program
- Information about program graduates, including where they are practicing, in what specialty and in what type of practice
- Payer mix/patient population
- Justification of your funding needs
To answer any questions about this new application process, PHC is hosting several webinars that will provide applicants with an overview of the CalMedForce requirements, deadlines, and the application.
Please forward this information to any colleagues who would benefit from this funding. Please email CalMedForce or give us a call at (916) 551-2899 for any application questions.
