U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Primary Care Training and Enhancement – Residency Training in Primary Care ProgramDeadline: January 24, 2020
The Primary Care Training and Enhancement – Residency Training in Primary Care Program (PCTE-RTPC) seeks to enhance accredited residency training programs in family medicine, general internal medicine, general pediatrics, or combined internal medicine and pediatrics (med-peds) in rural and/or underserved areas, and encourage program graduates to choose primary care careers in these areas. This funding also supports the development of rural and/or underserved residency tracks within existing accredited residency programs for family medicine, general internal medicine, and med-peds programs. Rural and/or underserved areas are identified by two defined sources:
- Clinical rotation site is located in a state that has a projected shortage of primary care providers in 2025, using the National Center for Health Workforce Analysis (NCHWA) shortage projections for primary care shortage for FY2025 (https://bhw.hrsa.gov/sites/default/files/bhw/health-workforce-analysis/research/projections/primary-care-state-projections2013-2025.pdf)
- Clinical rotation site is located in an area considered rural as determined by the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP), using the Rural Health Grants Eligibility Analyzer at https://data.hrsa.gov/tools/rural-health
Applicants are encouraged to address the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) priorities of combating the opioid crisis and strengthening mental health service access through resident clinical training and scholarly projects.
