In March, [Marcus Cummins] matched with UCSF Fresno’s internal medicine residency program, where he will complete his training. The campus is home to one of the University of California’s Programs in Medical Education, or UC PRIME, which encourage students of color to pursue medical degrees to help diversify the field and ease the physician shortage, particularly in underserved communities. The public university system launched the first training program in 2004, at its Irvine campus, and has since expanded it to all six medical schools, many with an emphasis on medically underserved communities.
