Program Description:

The purpose of the MSE Program is to provide grants to public institutions of higher education to expand or support graduate education for medical students preparing to become physicians in the top quintile of states with a projected primary care provider shortage in 2025.2 The program is designed to prepare and encourage medical students training in the most underserved states to choose residencies and careers in primary care that serve tribal communities, rural communities, and/or medically underserved communities (MUCs) after they graduate. This will be accomplished by supporting the development of medical school curricula, clinical training site partnerships, and faculty training programs, with the goal of educating medical students who are likely to choose career paths in primary care, especially for tribal communities, rural communities, and/or MUCs.

Additional Eligibility

The MSE Program’s authorization requires the Secretary to give priority to public institutions of higher education located in States with a projected primary care provider shortage in 2025, as determined by the Secretary, and awards are limited to such public institutions of higher education in the top quintile of States with a projected primary care provider shortage in 2025.
