Family Medicine & Nurse Practitioner Residency Training Program

The Family Medicine (FM) and Nurse Practitioner (NP) Residency Training Program aims to expand the pool of primary care providers who are committed to and well-prepared for serving underserved populations in community settings.

Family Medicine Residency Program

A portion of the Family Medicine (FM) Residency Training Program funding will be used to increase the number of family medicine residency training slots in community health centers in Massachusetts.

Successful applicants will be awarded $170,000 per resident per year for the entire residency period for each residency slot approved. These funds will be broken out as follows:

  • $150,000 per resident per year must cover resident compensation, as well as community health center costs associated with training residents
  • $20,000 per resident per year may cover any costs that the family medicine residency program and community health center site together deem appropriate, including resident training costs incurred by the residency program, hospital, or community health center, and/or costs associated with implementing new features within existing programs

Community health centers and ACGME-accredited family medicine residency programs are eligible to apply for funding through this program. Either the ACGME-accredited family medicine residency program or the community health center partner may be the lead applicant. However, all applications must include letters of commitment signed by the executive leadership of both partners, as well as a detailed description of how the two distinct entities will work together to create new community health center-based training opportunities for family medicine residents using program funding.

Applications that intend to create new community health center-based family medicine resident training opportunities, as opposed to those that seek to preserve existing training slots, are strongly preferred.

Applications are due August 31, 2018, at 5:00 ET, via email:
