Tagged: primary care incentives
The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley School of Medicine received a three-year, $2 million grant to help incentivize graduates to stay in the valley area and practice primary care. Dean John Krouse simply stated, “There has been a relative disproportionally low number of primary care physicians in the Valley.”
With an average 2017 indebtedness of $181,179 for public medical school graduates and $206,204 for private medical school graduates, we believe such incentives are a great way to help ensure the nation’s needs for primary care physicians is met. We’re hopeful this effort will be successful and we’ll see more such programs in the future. (And, of course, we hope we’re not jinxing anything by going on record with this statement!)
Best of luck with your applications!
