HRSA Administrator Johnson Visits the Spokane Teaching Health Center To Highlight Training Program for Primary Care Physicians
HRSA Administrator Johnson and U.S. Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington, Chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, visited the Spokane Teaching Health Center in Spokane, Washington, to meet with primary care residents and highlight the role of the Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education (THCGME) program. This critical program supports the training of health care providers in community-based settings, with a focus on rural and underserved areas. By establishing and supporting medical residency programs in such settings, the THCGME program builds on the understanding that most health care providers will go on to practice in the communities in which they train, bolstering the health workforce in the highest need areas.
