Preventive Medicine and Public Health Training Grant Program

The Preventive Medicine and Public Health Training Grant Program is authorized by Title VII, section 768 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, 42 U.S.C.

295c, as amended by Section 10501(m)(1) of ACA.

This announcement solicits applications for the Preventive Medicine and Public Health


Training Grant Program.

The statute authorizes the Preventive Medicine and Public Health Training Grant Program to provide funding to:
1 Plan, develop (including the development of curricula), operate, or participate in an accredited residency or internship program in preventive medicine or public health; 2 Defray the costs of practicum experiences, as required in such a program; and 3 Establish, maintain, or improve academic administrative units (including departments, divisions, or other appropriate units) in preventive medicine and public health or programs that improve clinical teaching in preventive medicine and public health.

The major emphasis of the Preventive Medicine and Public Health Training Grant Program is to increase the number of preventive medicine physicians and promote greater access to population-based healthcare.

The funding may be used to support resident costs, infrastructure and faculty development activities.

At least 75 percent of the funds must be used for trainee support, such as tuition for the master's degree in public health or other master's degree related to the preventive medicine specialty, fees, travel, and stipends (reasonable living expenses).

Trainee support is limited to $75,000 per trainee per year of training for a maximum of 24 months, which includes the academic year and the practicum year.

For the five year project period, different cohorts of residents will be funded for a 24 month period.

Faculty development activities that may be supported include the participation of the project director and/or key faculty in professional development opportunities.

New residency programs, without accreditation status, can request up to $150,000 for the first year of the grant to plan and develop a residency program.

New programs must provide proof of their accreditation status by the end of the first year of support in order to continue to receive grant funds and to receive support for trainee costs.

Examples of activities that applicants may propose include innovations or enhancements to existing curriculum in areas such as collaborations with state and local health departments, community health centers and community hospitals.

Applicants can also address learning activities that integrate population health with primary health care, as well as propose activities that leverage learning opportunities on the knowledge of policy development, public health information technology, and quality; and enhancement of prevention research.

This program allows the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), acting through the Administrator of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), and in consultation with the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to award grants to, or enter into contracts with, eligible entities to provide training to graduate medical residents in preventive medicine specialties
