  HHS: Rural Training Track Technical Assistance Demonstration Program HRSA-13-247

his announcement solicits applications for the Rural Training Track Technical Assistance (RTT-TA) Demonstration Program. RTTs are family medicine residency programs with a particular focus on training physicians who will practice in rural communities. The purpose of this new competitive announcement is to provide national support and policy analysis for this unique model of rural-focused allopathic and osteopathic physician family medicine residency training. The RTT-TA demonstration program strongly encourages the formation of a consortium of entities to continue to delineate the policy challenges that RTT residency programs face in training family medicine physicians. This cooperative agreement is an ongoing activity that builds on the work of a previous RTT demonstration (HRSA-10-192). This project will work to identify and analyze the key policy issues, challenges and barriers that continue to affect these rural training sites, and will provide technical assistance where appropriate to increase the number of family medicine residents who train in RTTs.
