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.

The Coordinating Board engaged the Texas Medical Schools in a negotiated rulemaking process, as required by Senate Bill 215, 83rd Texas Legislature, Regular Session. New rules were drafted and approved by the Negotiated Rulemaking Committee on the Primary Care Innovation Program in April 2014 and became final on July 24, 2014. In September 2014, the Coordinating Board released the Request for Applications (RFA) for the Primary Care Innovation Program.

In Fiscal Year 2015, the Coordinating Board awarded three two-year grants totaling $875,064 under the Primary Care Innovation Program. The awarded projects focus on students' early and sustained exposure to various aspects of primary care.
