The Wisconsin Rural Physician Residency Assistance
Program (WRPRAP) provides funds to expand the number of
resident positions at rural healthcare facilities in
Wisconsin, with the goal of improving access to quality
healthcare for rural communities.
There are 2 types of grants:
Rural Graduate Medical Education (GME) operational
grants support quality improvement and
continuation of current rural GME programs. Activities
may include rural rotations, curriculum development,
and technical assistance for rural residency programs.
Rural GME transformational grants support
initiatives to develop and evaluate innovative rural
GME programs; to determine and validate appropriate GME
performance measures; and to award new WRPRAP-funded
GME training positions in eligible disciplines.
WRPRAP funds are available to any new or existing
Wisconsin residency program specializing in:
- Family medicine
- General surgery
- Internal medicine
The residency position(s) should be in a hospital that is
located in a rural area or in a clinic staffed by
physicians who admit patients to a hospital located in a
rural area. Rural area is defined as a population of less
than 20,000 that is at least 15 miles from any community
that has a population of 20,000 or more.
Amount of funding
Grant amounts vary based on the needs of the program.
Applicants are encouraged to contact WRPRAP staff to
discuss the program scope and proposed budget before beginning
the application process.
