What is the program?

The MSE Program provides grants to public institutions of higher education to expand or support graduate education for medical students preparing to become physicians in the top quintile of states with a projected primary care provider shortage in 2025.

We designed the program to prepare medical students training in the most underserved states to choose residencies and careers in primary care that serve tribal communities, rural communities, and/or medically underserved communities (MUCs) after they graduate.

We support the development of medical school curricula, clinical training site partnerships, and faculty training programs, to educate medical students who are likely to choose career paths in primary care, especially for tribal communities, rural communities, and/or MUCs.


Are you eligible?

The MSE Program’s authorization requires the Secretary to give priority to public institutions of higher education located in states with a projected primary care provider shortage in 2025, as determined by the Secretary.

Awards are limited to such public institutions of higher education in the top quintile of states with a projected primary care provider shortage in 2025.
