An accelerated medical school pilot program through University of California Davis will get started this summer, and a bill is moving its way through the Legislature to make it easier for doctors to complete their educations faster, according to Capital Public Radio.

Assembly Bill 1838, which has moved to the Senate, doesn’t cut corners, according to its sponsor, Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla. It is, however, a way for students to incur less debt, and to get out in the field faster to address a shortage of primary care doctors.
