The Health Resources and Services Administration today awarded 27 organizations up to $750,000 each to develop new rural residency programs while achieving accreditation through the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. “Promoting the health of rural America is one of the Trump Administration’s health care priorities,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar. “Supporting the training of health care providers in rural areas through grants like these is a key way to help expand rural access to care, and is part of an overall effort to support rural health care in sustainable, innovative and flexible ways.”
