  10. Once unthinkable, drug shoot-up rooms get serious look in California and across USRead the original story w/Photo

The possible shuttering of the nearly 40-year-old Berkeley-UCSF Joint Medical Program -- which trains physicians for three years before they begin their clinical rotations at UCSF -- comes as the state desperately seeks doctors to treat millions of Californians newly covered as a result of the Affordable Care Act.

    Apr 29, 2016 | The Campbell Reporter
