Grants to Iowa hospitals, consortia, and schools that provide accredited residency programs to increase the number of available physician residencies. The purpose of funding is to increase the number of psychiatric, obstetric, gynecologic, and emergency medicine physicians who choose to practice medicine within the State. A sponsor program must establish a new or alternative campus-accredited residency program, provide new residency positions within their already established residency program, fund residency positions that are in excess of the federal residency cap, or support payment of sponsor medical residency program liability costs.

In addition, sponsors must:

  • Implement a recruitment and retention plan, developed as part of the application, to encourage residents to practice in Iowa. The plan must consider prioritizing health professional shortage areas and demonstrating the impact on Iowa’s workforce over time. Health professional shortage areas can be found at
  • A primary care residency position includes psychiatry, obstetrics, gynecology, family medicine, internal medicine, and emergency medicine. A sponsor program must provide primary care residents the opportunity to participate in a rural rotation to expose the resident to the rural areas of the state. Telemedicine is allowed as part of the rural rotation; however, face-to-face contact must also be incorporated.

Priority and preference in awarding Medical Residency Training State Matching Grants Program grants will be given to sponsor applications based on 2019 House File 532 Section 1. Priority and preference will be given to applications:

  • That establish or expand medical residency training programs in emergency medicine, OB/GYN, or psychiatry; and
  • Include a preference for residency candidates:
    • Who are residents of Iowa;
    • Attend and earned an undergraduate degree from an Iowa college or university; or
    • Attended and earned a medical degree from a medical school in Iowa.
