Donation will help ease doctor shortage

A few more much-needed doctors will come to town through a $1.35 million donation to one of San Joaquin General Hospital’s residency programs, a move officials say would increase access to medical care in a region where physician shortages remain a concern. The gift from a private foundation of $225,000 per year over six years would increase the number of residents in the Family Medicine Residency Training Program from 21 to 24.
