Applications are now being accepted for the fourth cycle of the graduate medical education grant program CalMedForce.
All eligible residency programs are encouraged to apply, with priority given to programs in medically underserved communities. New for this year: Combined residency programs with at least one eligible discipline (family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics & gynecology, pediatrics, and emergency medicine) are invited to apply.
The CalMedForce program dedicates voter-approved, state tobacco tax revenues from Proposition 56 to train physicians and help California address its growing physician shortage. Each year the program awards approximately $38 million to primary care and emergency medicine residency programs across California.
Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. (PT) on Sept. 17.
