Calif. Legislature OKs Physician License Prioritization Bill
Last week, the California Legislature approved a bill (AB 1288) -- by Assembly member Manuel Perez (D-Coachella) -- that would require the Medical Board of California to prioritize applications for physician licenses from individuals who agree to treat members of a medically underserved population. The bill was sent to Gov. Jerry Brown (D) for consideration.
