AB-893 Public health: graduate medical education.(2017-2018)



SECTION 1.

 Section 127805 is added to the Health and Safety Code, to read:

127805.
 (a) The Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development may receive data regarding the number of graduate medical education slots necessary to meet the current and future physician and surgeon needs of the County of Imperial and similar medically underserved counties from the following entities:
(1) Local public health or health planning agencies.
(2) Entities engaged in the provision of health care services in those areas, including, but not limited to, hospitals and physician groups.
(3) Professional and educational associations, such as the American Medical Association, the American Health Planning Association, the Association of American Medical Colleges, the American College of Physicians, and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
(b) For purposes of this section, “similar medically underserved counties” means counties that contain medically underserved areas and populations as designated by the Health Resources and Services Administration of the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
SEC. 2.
 The Legislature finds and declares that a special statute is necessary and that a general statute cannot be made applicable within the meaning of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution because of the unique need to gather data necessary to determine current and future physician and surgeon needs in the County of Imperial and similar medically underserved counties.
