Primary Care Innovation Program

The 83rd Texas Legislature, Regular Session, created several new programs to support medical and graduate medical education. The Primary Care Innovation Program will provide awards, on a competitive basis, to medical schools that administer innovative programs designed to increase the number of primary care physicians in the state. The legislature appropriated $2.1 million for the program in Fiscal Years 2014-2015.

In September 2014, the Coordinating Board released the first Request for Applications (RFA) for the Primary Care Innovation Program. Subsequently, the Coordinating Board awarded five two-year grants totaling $1,794,263. The awarded projects focus on students' early and sustained exposure to various aspects of primary care.

For the 2016-2017 biennium, the Texas Legislature appropriated $2.1 million for the program. The timeline for release of a RFA in FY 2016 is currently under development.
