This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Primary Care Training and Enhancement: Residency Training in Primary Care (PCTE-RTPC) Program.
The purpose of this program is 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. Per PHS Act section 799(a), HRSA is carrying out this strategic workforce supplementation activity to meet the health workforce goal of increasing the distribution of primary care physicians who are ready to practice in and lead the transformation of healthcare systems aimed at improving access, quality of care, and cost effectiveness in rural and/or underserved areas.
Eligible entities include accredited public or nonprofit private hospitals, schools of allopathic medicine or osteopathic medicine, or a public or private non-profit entity which the Secretary has determined is capable of carrying out a residency training program in family medicine, general internal medicine, general pediatrics or combined internal medicine and pediatrics (“med-peds”), which for the purposes of this program are those accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
