Through this program (THCPD-TA), HRSA will enter into a cooperative agreement with a single entity to provide technical assistance (TA) for HRSA's Teaching Health Center Planning and Development Program (THCPD) award recipients to support the creation of new accredited community-based primary care residency programs in rural and underserved communities.

(TA provided may include assistance in curriculum development, faculty recruitment and development, clinical and community partnerships, and program administration)
  • Support THCPD Program award recipients' efforts to establish and maintain new community-based residency programs to achieve program accreditation and assist with identifying, qualifying for, and securing sustainable pathways of funding for community-based residencies
  • Identify, track, analyze, and translate key policy, regulatory, and programmatic issues to inform THCPD Program award recipients and other community-based stakeholders about changes, knowledge gaps, or other challenges impacting community-based residency programs and graduate medical education (GME) funding
  • Analyze overall impact of the THCPD-TA and THCPD Program activities and funding on rural and underserved communities
  • Promote community-based residency training to medical and dental students
