Applications for $38 Million in Graduate Medical Education Funding Available This Month

Applications for $38 million in grants to expand graduate medical education (GME) in California primary care and emergency medicine residency programs will be available beginning Sept. 23. The funding – which will give priority to programs in medically underserved areas and that serve medically underserved populations – is being awarded through Physicians for a Healthy California’s GME program, CalMedForce.

Applications must be submitted by Oct. 28. However, early submissions are encouraged, as applications received by Oct. 11 can be edited, if needed. Applications received Oct. 12 or later will be considered final. For complete information, visit the CalMedForce Grant Application webpage.

CalMedForce is funded through Proposition 56, which was approved by voters in 2016. The program allocates GME funding to sustain, retain, and expand California residency positions in family medicine, emergency medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, and pediatrics to meet the needs of California’s medically underserved populations.

To subscribe to updates, email CalMedForce@phcdocs.org with “subscribe” in the body of the message.
