Health Care Provider Workforce Development Initiative

The CalOptima Health Provider Workforce Development Initiative will increase access to high-quality, equitable care for members by investing in strategies that aim to close gaps in Orange County’s health care workforce.

To address the crisis shortages and gaps in the Orange County health care provider workforce, CalOptima Health allocated $50 million over five years towards the Health Care Provider Workforce Development Initiative to increase opportunities for education, training, recruitment and retention of health professionals needed to serve our diverse members. The initiative includes:

Competitive Grant Programs: The first of two rounds of grants will focus on providing funding for educational investments to increase the number of health care professionals. A second round of grant funding will be announced for workforce training and development innovation.

Physician Recruitment and Loan Repayment Programs: CalOptima Health will launch two physician recruitment and loan repayment programs in 2024. More information will be provided on the application process and timeline soon.

Stakeholder Collaborative: CalOptima Health will convene an Orange County Health Care Provider Workforce Development Collaborative in 2024. More information will be provided on how to participate in the collaborative soon.
