The Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education (THCGME) Program provides funding to support the training of residents in new or expanded primary care residency training programs in community-based ambulatory patient care centers. The purpose of the THCGME program is to strengthen the primary care workforce by supporting medical and dental training programs in primary care, community-based settings with an emphasis on improving the distribution of this health workforce in rural and underserved communities.
