Grants to USA hospitals, universities, and others with accredited dental programs to provide training for their postdoctoral students in integrated health care sites. On December 18, a webinar will be held. On January 22, a conference call will be held. The programs will focus on providing services to underserved and vulnerable groups particularly low income, underserved, uninsured, underrepresented minority, health disparity, and rural populations.

Applicants will be required to develop or enhance integrated health care delivery systems that serve as training sites for postdoctoral dental trainees. Integrated systems should be demonstrated by partnerships with primary care delivery organizations and other community-based organizations.

Integrated health care delivery systems should include:
• Collaborative practice across dentistry and other health disciplines,
• Mechanisms to improve care coordination, and
• System level initiatives, such as integrated electronic health records or care coordination among a network of providers to reduce the number of dental cases treated within emergency rooms in a region.

Grants will be required to focus on one or both of the following two Focus Areas:

Focus Area 1: Developing and testing new training and delivery models in clinical training sites that prepare postdoctoral dentists to provide care for specified underserved groups or communities.

Focus Area 2: Developing and testing new or enhanced training in dental public health and/or population health management. Applications must include didactic and experiential training to provide residents with the skills to assess population needs and use data to drive health system processes.

Applicants can propose accredited residency programs in one of the following disciplines: general dentistry, pediatric dentistry, or dental public health or collaborative accredited residency programs involving at least two of the following disciplines: general dentistry, pediatric dentistry, or dental public health. The proposed collaboration must be significant and include joint planning and implementation and be included as one of the grant objectives. Progress on this objective will be monitored.
