Improving Funding For Primary Care Training

Finally we are beginning to recognize the long standing shortage of Primary Care Physicians! Health and Human Services has approved additional funding for Primary Care Residency training programs. This is just one of the things that will help grow the field of Primary Care. I feel another strategy to increase Primary Care interest for emerging students is to offer loan forgiveness and competetive loan repayment programs, as well as raise reimbursement rates for Primary Care Physicians.
