WVa rural surgery residency program gets planning grant

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — The planning and development of West Virginia’s first rural surgery residency program now has the help of a $750,000 federal grant.
Marshall University’s Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine received a three-year grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the university said in a news release.
The federal Rural Residency Planning and Development Program awarded nine grants to help address physician workforce shortages in rural communities. A shortage of general surgeons is expected across the U.S. by 2025. It’s the first time these funds have been awarded to plan a rural surgery residency program, the statement said.
The grant will be administered through the Marshall Community Health Consortium, which will develop curriculum, recruit faculty and address necessary clinical and learning environment needs.
The training program’s goal is to attain initial accreditation in 2022 and welcome its first residents in 2023. Residents will spend at least half of the five-year training residency in a rural hospital, the statement said.
