Grants to USA community-based ambulatory patient care centers for programs to train residents in community settings. Interested applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support primary care residency training programs that will prepare residents to provide high-quality care, especially in rural and underserved communities. Eligible program areas include family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine, dentistry, psychiatry, geriatrics, and obstetrics and gynecology.
Two award types are available:
The THCGME Program aims to strengthen the primary care workforce by supporting medical and dental training programs in primary care, community-based settings with an emphasis on improving the distribution of this health workforce in rural and underserved communities. The program focuses on a different model for resident education than most other federally funded models of GME, which are predominantly located in large, urban academic medical centers. This model was developed based on evidence showing that family medicine resident physicians who train in health center settings are nearly three times as likely to practice in underserved settings after graduation when compared to residents who did not train in health centers. There is also evidence that physicians who receive training in community and underserved settings are more likely to practice in similar settings, such as health centers. Thus the THCGME Program is providing a vital supply line to support the primary care health workforce demand.
Expanding the number of primary care residents who train in community-based ambulatory patient care centers will have a direct impact on increasing healthcare providers in rural and underserved areas. It is part of the Administration’s commitment to addressing longstanding health inequities and expanding the pipeline of health care providers serving rural and underserved communities.
