VA Pilot Program on Graduate Medical Education and Residency

Notice of proposed rule from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposing to revise its medical regulations to establish a new pilot program on graduate medical education and residency. This proposed rule would establish substantive and procedural requirements to allow VA to administer this pilot program in a manner consistent with section 403 of the MISSION Act. Includes information on the criteria in which residency programs will be established or residents will be placed – such as VA staffing levels, location of VA facilities in certain areas deemed as health professional shortage areas, and priority for residents to be placed for the provision of specific types of health care – as well as the types of facilities in which residents may be placed. Comments are due by April 5, 2022. (Source: Federal Register)
