OB/GYN residency training program receives CalMedForce grant


The UC Davis Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Training Program has received a $200,000 CalMedForce grant, which will be administered over the next four years. 

CalMedForce offers annual grants to fund new residency positions at graduate medical education programs throughout California.

“We are excited to receive this grant from CalMedForce,” said Véronique Taché, the OB/GYN residency program director. “The additional funding will allow us to strengthen our educational training with access to more simulation-based workshops, allow residents to work in rural areas with OB/GYN shortages and invest in our residents' research endeavors."

The CalMedForce grant program is funded by Proposition 56, which allocates $40 million for graduate medical education to sustain, retain, and expand California residency positions in primary care and emergency medicine. The University of California is the designated recipient of funds and contracts with Physicians for a Healthy California (PHC) to administer the program.
