California may lose $50 million in graduate medical education funding due to four programs ending soon, according to the California Academy of Family Physicians. The state currently has 140 family medicine residency slots, which could be jeopardized by the loss of the following:  
·         The Teaching Health Center graduate medical education grant program, which expires this year
·         The Primary Care Residency Expansion program, which awarded the state $18 million in grants last year to create new primary care residency positions
·         A $21 million endowment grant supporting the Song-Brown Residency Program over the past three years expires in 2016
·         A one-time infusion of $4 million appropriated last year by the legislature to Song-Brown
