MERCED - Creating a University of California medical school in the San Joaquin Valley got a jumpstart recently with a $225,000 grant to establish a telemedicine network providing access to specialists for residents of the underserved region.

The funding came in the form of a seed grant from the California Partnership for the San Joaquin Valley earmarked for the university's newest campus in Merced. UC Merced first announced plans to develop health sciences and medical education programs in the Valley in March 2006.
