Emergency and Trauma Care Education Partnership Program (ETEP)

The Emergency and Trauma Care Education Partnership Program (ETEP) was established by Senate Bill 7 passed by the 82nd Texas Legislature, First Called Session.  The statute authorizes the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to administer the program and to make grants to emergency and trauma care education partnerships.

For Fiscal Years 2014 and 2015, the Legislature appropriated $4.5 million from the Department of State Health Services General Revenue-Dedicated Account No. 5111, Designated Trauma Facility and Emergency Medical Services Account, to support ETEP and provide grant awards for partnerships.  

The program provides funding to support partnerships between hospitals and graduate medical education programs that increase the number of emergency medicine and trauma care physician residents and fellows. The program provides similar support for partnerships between hospitals and graduate nursing programs to increase the educational experiences in emergency and trauma care for registered nurses pursuing a graduate degree or certificate.

ETEP partnerships must certify an increase in the number of physicians and/or nursing students in the participating graduate education programs.  In addition, the partnership must make use of the existing expertise and facilities of the hospitals and education programs.
