Grants for Medical Education
The Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education (GME) program is a $230 million, 5-year initiative created by the Affordable Care Act to increase the number of primary care residents and dentists trained in community-based settings. The Teaching Health Center GME program is instrumental in increasing access to health care services for people who are geographically isolated, economically or medically vulnerable.
Teaching Health Center GME funding pays for direct and indirect medical education expenses for training residents in new or expanding community-based primary care residency programs. Clinical training sites include federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) and FQHC Look-Alikes, community mental health centers, rural health clinics, Indian Health Service or Tribal clinics, and Title X clinics (family planning clinics).
Teaching Health Centers are located in a variety of settings, including urban, rural and Tribal communities, and serve populations such as veterans and their families, minority communities, older adults, children and adolescents. Seventy-five percent of Teaching Health Centers are Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) or FQHC Look-Alikes, serving underserved communities.
To be eligible to apply to the Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education program, an entity must be
- a community-based ambulatory patient care setting that operates a primary care medical or dental (general or pediatric) residency program; and
- listed as an institutional sponsor by the relevant accrediting body.
A Graduate Medical Education consortium collaborating with a health center and hospital in operating one or more primary care GME programs may also be eligible.
