Assembly Health Committee Votes for More Primary Care Residency Slots

The Assembly Committee on Health yesterday passed a bill that tries to address the shortage of primary care physicians in California by offering more residency slots for training physicians in underserved areas of the state.

AB 2458 by Assembly member Susan Bonilla (D-Concord) would add approximately 300 new spaces for resident physicians who have just graduated from medical school and earned their M.D. degree, but still need to complete three years of primary care residency training.
