Affordable Care Act (ACA) Primary Care Residency Expansion Program

The Primary Care Residency Expansion program was a five-year initiative to increase the number of physicians trained in family medicine, general internal medicine, and general pediatrics residency programs.

Grantees are primary care residency programs that commit to increasing their number of
training positions by one to four new post-graduate year one positions for five consecutive years.

Awards facilitate this expansion by providing $80,000 per expanded position per year.
