The California Healthcare Workforce Policy Commission (CHWPC) will hold a policy meeting on May 18 to discuss Song-Brown health care workforce training programs, including the family nurse practitioner and registered nurse application criteria and evaluation criteria; allocation of surplus primary care residency funds; nurse mid-wifery programs and more. The Song-Brown Program, which is aided by CHWPC, provides financial support to family medicine, internal medicine, OB/GYN and pediatric residency programs, as well as family nurse practitioner, physician assistant and registered nurse education programs throughout California. CHWPC is a 15-member citizen advisory board that provides expert guidance and statewide perspectives on health professional education issues, reviews applications and recommends contract awards to the OSHPD director.
