Groups Eye Locals To Boost S.J. Valley Physician Rolls
Hospitals, medical societies and physician groups have been working with educators to address a physician shortage in San Joaquin Valley by tapping young residents who would be willing to pursue medical careers in the area. For example, the San Joaquin Valley Program in Medical Education -- sponsored by UC-Merced -- launched last fall with its first class of six medical students who all are Valley residents.
