Three things are becoming increasingly common at California universities.
Students are spending less time at their desks, and the number of faculty members in a university’s medical school has fallen below 100.
And the cost of residency is dropping, too.
In the last five years, the number and average salary of residency faculty have fallen to below the national average, according to a new analysis of publicly available data from the California Department of Public Health.
The median salary of a residency faculty member at the University of California, Los Angeles, was $106,000 in 2015, the first year of the new salary scale, according a survey of faculty by The Los Angeles Times.
That compares with the national median of $105,000.
At UCLA, which is the largest medical school in the state, the median salary for a faculty member was $112,000 last year.
The median salary at Stanford University was $121,000, and at the top of the list was $135,000 at the California Institute of Technology.
The state average salary for all physicians was $113,000 two years ago.
A majority of California medical schools have reduced their teaching positions.
Only 10 of California’s 58 medical schools now offer residency programs, according the Kaiser Family Foundation.
That leaves an enormous number of empty seats.
The state’s medical schools, which are also the largest in the country, have a $1.5 billion surplus, with money from tuition, fees and other revenue that they’ve spent on other things.
That means fewer teaching positions for the state’s best and brightest doctors.
And the problem is not limited to California.
At least two dozen states have cut residency positions and are in the process of doing so.
In the last two years, residency programs have been the subject of scrutiny by medical associations and lawmakers.
In May, California lawmakers passed a bill that would make it easier for students to transfer from one residency program to another, according Toews.
The proposal would exempt the medical schools from the state law that requires a residency program at least two years.
But the bill faces a long road to becoming law.
If it passes, the law will be in effect for a few more years.
At least six states are trying to pass laws to stop the exodus of the best and the brightest medical school faculty.
At the same time, the residency positions are being lost.
A new report from the University Of California, San Francisco, found that of the 100 most highly ranked California medical school residents in the past three years, about half are retiring, and about a third of the remaining faculty members are being laid off.
In addition, the research suggests that the number is going to rise in coming years.
More than half of the top 100 residency positions have already been cut by the time the new academic year starts, according Kaiser Health News.
And more than a quarter of the students who are entering residency programs in the coming years will not be able to attend the school, according another study.
In an effort to save the top ranks, the state Legislature passed a law in 2013 that gives residency programs a one-year grace period before they can be shut down.
In a few months, the program could be back.
But the law doesn’t apply to the medical programs of some universities, said Roberta Kaplan, a spokeswoman for the California Medical Association, the nation’s largest medical association.
Kaplan said the association has not been consulted on any changes.
She said the new law would not stop the medical school exodus, but would give the state more time to develop its own residency programs.
The issue is not just California’s medical centers.
There are also growing concerns about the way California’s top medical schools are recruiting, retaining and paying faculty members.
Last year, the California Health Care Foundation published a report that found a sharp decline in the number, and average, salary of physicians at the state-funded schools.
In California, the health care organization found that the average salary is now lower than in the rest of the country and that the salary of the most highly paid faculty members has fallen to just below the average.
The average salary in the top 10 percent of the pay scale is now $109,000 compared with $121 in the middle of the distribution.
In a statement, the association said that it supports the state legislature’s goal of creating a higher standard for faculty compensation, but added that it does not believe that a higher salary level is the solution.
“We are not advocating a salary cap.
We simply support the state government’s ability to set higher salaries,” the statement said.
It’s not just medical schools that are struggling to retain good and top-quality faculty.
Some of the state public universities, such as California State University, Los Angeles, and Los Angeles State University are also struggling.
The association’s report noted that the state average tuition for all California public colleges and universities rose more than 11
