Accelerated Medical Degree Legislation Moves to Senate
The California Assembly has advanced a bill (AB 1838) that would allow students in an accelerated pilot program at the UC-Davis School of Medicine to obtain medical licenses in less than four years. The bill, which is pending in the Senate, aims to address a growing physician shortage in the state.
