Are these eligible: NP and PA Residency Programs who have received accreditation by the National Nurse Practitioner Residency and Fellowship Training Consortium.
Kate Brice
32:52
Is this for CHC's located in rural areas only?

Can CMHC apply

We currently have a Pediatric Dental Residency Program in conjunction with NYU Langone. Are we able to use this funding to add teachers to this program so we are able to expand the FTE of residents we are able to take on? NYU pays the residents, we pay the instructors.
Kennita R. Carter, MD (Chief, GME Branch)
36:07
@Chris Beall- Only community based primary care physician and dental residency programs are eligible to apply for THCGME funding. HRSA funds NP and PA Residency programs through other programs. To learn more visit -https://bhw.hrsa.gov/funding/apply-grant
Dorothy Lane

Are preventive medicine residents considered primary care residents eligible for this funding?
Margo Wolfe, PhD
36:57
Can you define community based?
Jennifer R. Raines

OMG! I was number one in the Repository for the Consortium for NYU ZEDS protocol a few years back! I love NYU!! 😍πŸ₯°πŸ˜˜
Carmela Meyer

Please see today's PPT.
Monae Raphael

In terms of eligibility for this NOFO (HRSA-22-139): 1) can expansion award applicants not funded in the fall of 2021 apply? and 2) can newly funded awardees (fall 2021) apply?
Becky
39:16
We have a new Family Medicine Residency Program at our critical access hospital in rural Eastern WA. Are we eligible to apply?
Angela Castro-Jenkins
40:11
We are an FQHC and got funded for the TCH planning and Developing grant, we plan to host residents on July 2024, can we apply to this grant?
Kennita R. Carter, MD (Chief, GME Branch)
40:36
@Dr. Lane - Preventive medicine residency programs are covered under a different program -The Preventive Medicine Residency Program - also based in the Division of Medicine and Dentistry.
Jennifer R. Raines
41:04
Duh.
Rachel Greenberg
41:37
Is there some where we could look to find out if there are organizations in our state who have previously received funding that we could potentially partner with?
Jennifer R. Raines
41:44
Whoops. My apologies.

Geriatrics is subspecialty after FM or IM, how does tht work?
Meaghan Ruddy
44:06
@Natalie - my understanding is no. This funding is for FTEs for funding the residents and NYU does that for you.
Kennita R. Carter, MD (Chief, GME Branch)
44:11
@Tomekia B - Please confirm that CMHC refers to Community Mental Health Clinic. If so, Community Mental Health Clinics are eligible.
Meaghan Ruddy
44:32
@ Jennifer - it is accredited as its own problem either by the IM or FM RCs

Kennita R. Carter, MD (Chief, GME Branch)
45:35
@Jennifer Genuardi - both types of geriatric fellowships are eligible as long as the fellowship is community based.
natalie.wrightson
45:49
So this money is for the salaries of the residents? The presenter just stated that it is for indirect and direct costs so I am a little confused.
Elizabeth Philippe
45:52
For the geriatric training program is the funding for fellowship?
Olapade James
46:40
Slides are likely to be attached PDF.
Meaghan Ruddy
46:40
@ Natalie, that is your answer

Mendy
47:06
What if you are a public entity or co-applicant model FQHC?
BMS Family Health & Wellness Centers
47:08
Are there any HRSA funding opportunities to help FQHCs develop residency training programs?
Jackie Pelicaric
47:17
If we are not yet a part of a GME consortium, is this something that must be formalized prior to applying?
Lowell Feldman
47:33
Any coverage for special focus on Substance use Disorders ?
Kennita R. Carter, MD (Chief, GME Branch)
47:45
@Elizabeth Philippe -Yes. The funding is for the fellowship.
Angela Castro-Jenkins
48:45
Will this opportunity be available next year? We are not quite there yet accreditation wise, but our program might be there in a year and half and we will like to have this FTE support for Residents salaries
Meaghan Ruddy
48:55
@Jackie - do you have an ACGME or CODA accredited program already extant?
Jackie Pelicaric
49:41
@meghan - No, we do not but are in discussions with an academic health center
Meaghan Ruddy
49:54
@Jackie - then you cannot apply for this opportunity.
Kris Drake
51:27
I echo Mendy's question regarding eligibility for the public entity, co-applicant model.
Kennita R. Carter, MD (Chief, GME Branch)
52:48
We respectfully request that participants refrain from answering questions to ensure accurate responses.
Justin Hayford - Esperanza
53:09
I echo Angela's question regarding whether this funding opportunity be available next year?
Kelly Huntsman PHC
53:12
The slides indicated that programs should be ready to train residents on July 1, 2022. We have not recruited residents for this funding opportunity, so while we will be ready to train them, we won't have residents to train until July 1, 2023.
Izabela Babinska
53:37
Can you please repeat - are programs in which a health system is the sponsor organization of the residency program are or are not eligible? Thank you
Cynthia Garza
54:55
I second echo Angela’s question regarding funding for future years.
Locklear, Kathleen Maguire
57:07
If your sponsor is listed as both a combination of Academic Institution and a community hospital, are you eligible to apply?
Judy Price
57:07
To be clear we cannot apply if we have positions that are currently State funded and we have funding for the 22/23 Academic Year.
Ben Andrews
57:17
I echo Kelly Huntsman's concern that the timing between the award determination date and the July 1 residency start date does not leave much time for recruitment. Is July 1 start date for new residents a hard and fast requirement?
Kate Brice
58:53
Should the FQHC already have residency training program in place?
sehorton
59:02
Can this be used to expand a Substance Use Fellowship?
natalie.wrightson
59:10
Please clarify allowable uses of funding "to support residents"
iphone
59:32
How long does accreditation takes? Is three or four months enough time?
Aurelia Jones-Taylor
59:41
Can programs apply that have accreditation site visits in June and the approval is pending?
Izabela Babinska
01:00:25
Can you please provide examples of what kind of documentation is acceptable for Attachment 9 (assurances that the resident FTEs will not be supported through an alternate source)?
Sean McAvoy
01:01:33
If a FQHC is a public entity with a hospital and the hospital is named on the ACGME certification... is the program still ineligible?
Aniyizhai Annamalai
01:01:42
Agree, it is not realistic to recruit residents after March 31 for July 1 start date. So would be helpful to hear how previous awardees planned this. And another question - the accreditation for primary care and psychiatry programs goes through ABIM and ABPN respectively. And their approval would depend on significant amount of hospital resident experience. Would that be considered not congruent with the community based expectations for this TH grant?
Marjorie Bowman MD MPA OAA VHA
01:01:55
Is there some expectations or limitations on the allowable fundable time of faculty in relationship to the number of residents?
Garth Brand MD, PD (he/him)
01:02:32
If we have some slots funded through THC, but have more resident FTE than we have funding for and rely on local community hospitals to fill the gap in funding each year, this is not budgeted, does that mean we can apply for this THC funding though our total resident FTE has not changed
Sarah L
01:02:56
Is there any way this funding can be used to sustain current operations of a FQHC Residency program, that would be considered a new THC and has 24 seats already and cannot open up new seats?
Jennifer Genuardi
01:03:56
Accredited means AGCME- SI designation or also per program you are seeking funding for?
Wendy Gimino
01:04:42
We do not have a current residency program but are working with a teaching hospital to start a dental residency program this summer. Are we eligible to apply?
D. Shmuels
01:05:24
we received funding for only a cohort of 4 residents with the other THCGME grant, can we use this funding to support all those residents that are not covered by that grant?
Cheyenne Spetzler
01:06:32
We are an FQHC with an existing dental residency that has never received any funding support. Are we eligible for this funding even without expansion?
Tania.Tafolla
01:06:39
are programs in which a health system is the sponsor organization of the residency program are or are not eligible?
Kris Drake
01:08:08
We did not receive an answer to Mendy's question regarding eligibility of an FQHC couched in a public entity, co-applicant framework.
Mendy
01:09:05
Thank you. Will do.
Lowell Feldman
01:09:06
Any response to focused raining for substance use disorder conditions?
Connie Crowe
01:10:02
can we get a contact information for questions? thank you!
Lance Laurier

Mendy
01:13:55
Where should we go to look for the recording?
Dean Germano, (He/His/Him) CEO, Shasta CHC- Redding CA
01:15:09
If we have short term grants that cover non-THCGME spots but that funding terminates in less than a year leaving us with no $ for those spots, you notice says that we can't apply for these funds. Is that correct? Why?
LMartin
01:19:21
So there MUST be a consortium because an FQHC for example,cannot be an accredited ACGME since they do not have the inpatient component necessary for residency training?
iphone
01:19:47
Ok
Arnold Cantu
01:19:55
Our community hospital provides us with a donation to assist in offsetting the costs of hosting the residency program. Are we still eligible to apply?
Mike’s iPad - Mircea B.
01:21:22
Is the $ 160k per year? For the next 4years?
Jennifer Genuardi
01:21:27
In seeking funding for psych for example: would we seek 160K * (4+8+12+16) (ie over 4 years of training)
Jennifer Genuardi
01:24:32
to clarify above: 4 psych residents for 4 years
Mary Jo Wagner
01:24:38
Our institution has the contract start date for all residency programs of June 24th each year (and end on June 23 of their graduating year). As many other institutions do the same, will these funds be provided for those days before July 1, 2022?
tblanco
01:37:32
If we are applying for an expansion, but have not yet received accreditation for the expansion can we apply. What is the cut off date for prove of expansion?
Sarah L
01:41:40
We had 24 slot during AY18-19 and do not plan to expand that baseline- could this funding be used to continue the current operations of our 24 baseline slots?
natalie.wrightson
01:43:01
We are an FQHC and have a residency program and meet the eligibility requirements - could we utilize this funding for the salaries of support staff like Dental Assistants as long as their salaries are not currently being covered by other federal monies?
Aniyizhai Annamalai
01:44:47
If this grant funding becomes available again next FY with similar terms I would appreciate suggestions on how to recruit residents in the Nov-Feb cycle (the usual recruitment time) when obviously funding would not have been applied for and granted yet.
