Physicians for a Healthy California (PHC) is now accepting applications for the third cycle of the graduate medical education (GME) grant program, CalMedForce.
In this cycle of the program, CalMedForce will award approximately $38 million to primary care and emergency medicine residency programs in California. In the first two cycles, hundreds of programs in hospitals, medical centers and community clinics received almost $76 million.
All eligible residency programs are encouraged to apply, and priority will be given to programs in medically underserved areas and populations.
CalMedForce dedicates voter-approved revenues from California’s Proposition 56 tobacco tax to train physicians and help California address its growing physician shortage, which is estimated to reach a 10.500-clinician shortfall by 2030 according to the California Future Health Workforce Commission.
Applications are due by September 21, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. (PST).
