UTHSC College of Medicine receives grant for Rural Residency Track

The Department of Family Medicine in the UTHSC College of Medicine-Chattanooga has received a $750,000 grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration to support the establishment of the Family Medicine Residency Rural Track in Bledsoe County.

The Family Medicine Residency Rural Track will be an expansion of the current three-year Family Medicine Residency in Chattanooga, a program that sponsors seven residents each year and provides inpatient care at the Erlanger Baroness Campus. The rural residency track will offer training and extend health care in Bledsoe County in partnership with the Erlanger Bledsoe Primary Care practice in Pikeville.
