Affordable Care Act - Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education (THCGME) Program

This announcement solicits FY 2014 applications for the Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education (THCGME) program.

 The Affordable Care Act directly appropriates $230 million for Fiscal Years 2011 through 2015 to make payments to qualified teaching health centers to support the expansion


of primary care medical and dental residency training in community-based ambulatory settings.

 These community-based settings include, but are not limited to, federally-qualified health centers (FQHCs) and FQHC Look-Alikes, community mental health centers, rural health clinics and health centers operated by the Indian Health Service or an Indian tribe or tribal organization, and entities receiving funds under title X of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act.

This funding opportunity builds on evidence showing that family medicine resident physicians who train in Health Center (HC) settings are nearly three times as likely to practice in underserved settings after graduation when compared to residents who did not train in HCs.

 (Morris 2008, Rieselbach 2010)  The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to identify eligible community based primary care residency programs that meet the THCGME eligibility criteria described in Section III.

FOAs for this program will be published annually as funds permit.

 All Teaching Health Centers (THCs) will apply for funding annually.

 New applicants as well as existing THCGME awardees who are proposing to further expand the number of new resident Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) slots in FY 2014 beyond those already approved during FY 2013 must apply for the expansion through this funding announcement.

 Existing THCGME awardees who will not expand the number of resident FTE slots beyond those already approved in FY 2013 will apply through the annual report mechanism; refer to ¿Reporting¿ (section VI.3 of this FOA) for further information.
