CAFP supports letter concerning the Governor's proposed cut to Song-Brown funds
CAFP partners with medical advocates to fight for family medicine residency program funding in the 2017 California budget. The 2016 $100 million allocation to the Song-Brown program is essential to stabilize and grow the residency programs that train family doctors who serve in areas of unmet need.
Thank you to all those who attended our 2017 Family Medicine Clinical Forum. We hope you had a wonderful time connecting with your colleagues, learning the latest in family medicine and experiencing San Francisco. We hope to see you next year!
