CalMedForce GME grant program application cycle open now

August 08, 2023

Physicians for a Healthy California is pleased to announce that the sixth application cycle of CalMedForce application cycle is now open!

CalMedForce administers annual grants to fund residency positions at graduate medical education (GME) programs throughout California. CalMedForce dedicates voter-approved, state tobacco tax revenues from Proposition 56 (2016) to train physicians and help California address its growing physician shortage.

Awardees are selected based on their ability to support and expand the physician workforce to meet the demands of California’s diverse and growing patient population, with a focus on medically underserved populations. Eligible GME programs include family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics and emergency medicine. Additionally, combined programs with at least one eligible discipline are welcome to apply.

To date, CalMedForce has awarded $189 million to 500 awardees, funding 966 resident positions. Last cycle we awarded 92% of applicants!

There is $38 million available to award to medical residency programs in this cycle. This year’s application will be open from August 1 to September 15, 2023. For more information and to sign up for an informational applicant webinar, visit calmedforce.org
