Rural Graduate Medical Education

RuralGME.org brings together partners in every specialty and experts from across the US in all aspects of rural graduate medical education who are ready and eager to support you.


The U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is accepting applications for Rural Residency Planning and Development Program (RRPD) grants to develop new rural residency programs or Rural Training Tracks (RTT) in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, or Psychiatry. In cooperation with HRSA, the initial goal for RuralGME.org is to help prospective or existing rural residency programs assess their ability to qualify for a HRSA RRPD grant.
