Federally Qualified Health Centers have many options and issues to understand when considering their possible involvement in a Graduate Medical Education program. Do you want to partner with a university or hospital? What will this cost? Do you want to own and operate the program, or are there other models? How long does it take? What are the benefits?


The answer to these and many other questions will be part of a one day workshop hosted by WACMHC and NWRPCA and led by national GME experts, Drs. Kiki Nocella and Dr. Mike Maples. Come with your questions and ideas and join with other FQHCs in Washington as we learn how to establish quality residency programs that will graduate physicians dedicated to serving underserved populations.


Brought to you in partnership by EHCI, NWRPCA, and WACMHC


As a result of the training session, participants will be able to:

  • Define two residency models
  • Explain how partnerships with education, healthcare, and community institutions support an effective program
  • Analyze the financial responsibilities to train residents
  • Explain the residency accreditation process
  • Assess an organization’s readiness for a primary care residency program
