Eligible applicants include accredited public or nonprofit private hospitals, schools of medicine or osteopathic medicine, academically affiliated physician assistant training programs, and public or private nonprofit entities. Applications for funding are due by Dec. 16.

The PCTE program strengthens the primary care workforce by supporting training for future primary care clinicians and by promoting primary care practices in rural and underserved areas.
