Video Summary
The video discussed various funding mechanisms for U.S. preventive medicine residency programs. It explained that most residency training is financed through clinical revenue and Medicare graduate medical education (GME) funding. However, preventive medicine programs often do not generate enough clinical revenue to sustain residency training. Medicare GME is based on the location of training and does not always apply to preventive medicine programs that do not have inpatient facilities. Medicaid also has a GME component, but the rules and regulations vary by state. The Veterans Health Administration (VA) provides GME funding at VA facilities, and preventive medicine programs can access this funding if they establish relationships with local VA facilities. The Children's Hospital GME program provides funding for residency rotations at children's hospitals, but preventive medicine programs can also receive funding through this program if they establish rotations that focus on preventive medicine projects. The Teaching Health Center GME program funds residency training at community-based training sites, but preventive medicine is currently excluded from this program. Other funding sources include the Primary Care Training and Enhancement (PCTE) program, the Preventive Medicine Residency Funding Program, the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) Rural Residency Program, and funding from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Department of Defense (DOD) . The video concluded by suggesting that preventive medicine residency programs should explore all available funding opportunities and consider incorporating the cost of the MPH degree into the overall cost of residency training. It also emphasized the need to market preventive medicine specialists to health systems and make the case for funding based on the unique expertise they bring in population health and quality improvement.
