California Primary Care Residency Program Collaborative

Read the Project Summary
The overall goal of this project is to improve education, outreach and treatment for patients with substance use disorder disease, including opioid use disorder, with a focus on medication assisted treatment options. Our goal is to enhance training for primary care physicians while encouraging creative and innovative approaches to meeting program and community needs.
With the goal above in mind, we have selected three objectives for this project:
  1. Advance the training of primary care residents and physicians in the field of substance use disorder disease treatment;
  2. Improve the patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction);
  3. Promote care that is patient-centric, engaging the community in the overall management of substance use disorder.

CAFP and the CAFP Foundation are inviting all California ACGME-accredited primary care residency programs training physicians in general internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics-gynecology and family medicine to take part in this competitive grant collaborative. The total grant for this initiative is $2 million. Grant ranges could vary, but each applicant’s budget should not exceed $50,000 and we intend to fund 40 residency programs. Expression of interest can be made online.
