Funding Detail Description

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Rural Residency Planning and Development (RRPD) Program. The purpose of this grant program is to support the development of new rural residency programs in family medicine, internal medicine, public health and general preventive medicine (hereafter referred to as “preventive medicine”), psychiatry, general surgery, and obstetrics and gynecology, to address the physician workforce shortages and challenges faced by rural communities. Rural residency programs are accredited medical residency training programs that primarily train residents in rural training sites for greater than 50 percent of their total time in residency, and focus on producing physicians who will practice in rural communities. One common model is the 1+2 Rural Training Track (RTT), where the first year of training occurs within a larger program, typically in an urban hospital or academic medical center, and the final two years in a rural health facility.
