(This amendment provides $100,000 from the general fund the second year to fund the fiscal impact of House Bill 1588 which adds geriatric fellowships to the eligibility criteria for the physician loan repayment program. Virginia is facing a critical shortage of geriatric trained physicians as detailed in the Joint Commission on Health Care Study on Healthcare Workforce Needs. A companion amendment in Item 297 provides $100,000 from the general fund for this initiative by reducing funding for the Hampton Roads Proton Beam Therapy Institute.)
