Grants Available for Preventive Medicine Residency With Integrative Health Training Program

The Health Resources and Services Administration Bureau of Health Workforce is accepting applications through May 29 for its Preventive Medicine Residency with Integrative Health Care Training Program. With more than $5 million in funding, the program aims to improve the health of communities by increasing the number and quality of preventive medicine physicians who can address public health needs and advance preventive medicine practices, increase access to integrative health care and increase integration of the two fields into overall primary care training and practice. Grant funding will support efforts to plan, develop (including the development of curricula), operate or participate in an accredited residency or internship program in preventive medicine or public health. Eligible applicants include accredited public or private nonprofit hospitals; accredited schools of public health; schools of medicine; state, local or tribal health departments; and consortia of two or more eligible applicants. Approximately 14 grants of up to $400,000 per year for three years will be awarded. An application guide is available at www.hrsa.gov/grants/apply/applicationguide/sf424guide.pdf.
