Law 360

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will award $83.4 million in Affordable Care Act grants to support community and tribal clinic residency programs for primary care physicians, it announced Monday, significantly expanding the grant program from the previous year.

The grants will go to support residencies in 60 so-called Teaching Health Centers, or THCs, across the U.S., supporting the training of more than 550 residents in the 2014-2015 academic year — an increase of more than 200 funded positions from the 2013-2014 academic year — according to HHS.
