California's shortage of primary care doctors will likely get worse, particularly in the Central Valley and the Inland Empire.  $$55 million worth of federal and private grants for medical residencies in underserved areas is expiring.  Capital Public Radio's Ben Bradford reports that a deal for the state to step in is also in jeopardy.
