Unfilled Position Grants

The Unfilled Position Grants program was created by House Bill 1025, 83rd Texas Legislature, codified as Texas Education Code (TEC) 58A. For fiscal years 2014 and 2015, $7,375,000 were appropriated in general revenue funds for Graduate Medical Education (GME) Expansion Unfilled Position Grants together with New & Expanded Program Grants which were also established by House Bill 1025.

The Unfilled Position Grants program provides support for existing, accredited GME programs that have currently approved but unfilled first-year positions. The grants are intended to provide funding for direct resident costs, including resident stipends and benefits. Statute mandates that each awarded residency position be funded at $65,000 per year and that no more than 25 unfilled positions be funded during Fiscal Year (FY) 2014. Awarded positions must be filled before funding is disbursed.

In FY 2014, the Coordinating Board funded 25 Post-Graduate Year (PGY) 1 residency positions for FY 2014 and an equivalent number of PGY 2 positions to be filled in FY 2015. In FY 2015, the Board funded 25 PGY 1 positions to be filled in FY 2015.
