One California lawmaker hopes to increase the number of primary care residency positions in the state by creating a GME fund.

Assembly member Susan Bonilla has introduced a proposal to create a state GME fund to provide grants to residency programs that produce primary care physicians. Under Bonilla’s proposal, the state would allocate $2.8 million a year for the next three years to the fund.
 
“The goal is to increase the number of medical residency slots in physician training programs that graduate primary care physicians and serve the underserved. This will help address the shortage and ensure that patients can find physicians to provide the care they need,” Bonilla said in a statement released by her office.
 
The California Assembly Health Committee will hear the bill in the April.
