Rural Residency Planning and Development Program: The purpose of this grant program is to develop new rural residency programs or Rural Training Tracks (RTT) in family medicine, internal medicine, and psychiatry, to support expansion of the physician workforce in rural areas. The new rural residency programs or RTTs are intended to be sustainable through separate public or private funding beyond the RRPD grant period of performance. Rural residency programs are allopathic and osteopathic physician residency training programs that primarily train in rural communities, place residents in rural locations for greater than 50 percent of their training, and focus on producing physicians who will practice in rural communities. A common model is the RTT, where the first year of training occurs within a larger program in an urban academic medical center and the final two years occur in a rural facility.
