Medical Xpress reports that the shortage of primary care doctors could worsen if funding for the Teaching Health Centers (THC), a program to train medical residents in underserved areas, is eliminated, according to the recent report from the Geiger Gibson/RCHN Community Health Foundation Research Collaborative at Milken Institute School of Public Health (Milken Institute SPH) at the George Washington University. Loss of funding – which has already been drastically reduced – could disrupt the training of 550 current medical residents and cut off the pipeline of future primary care residents.
