GME Expansion

The New Mexico Human Services Department (HSD) announces the establishment of the Graduate Medical Education (GME) Expansion Grant Program and the GME Expansion Review Board and Advisory Group to oversee the program. The purpose is to establish grants to fund new GME programs and expand existing programs to increase the health care work force in New Mexico, particularly in the fields of primary care and psychiatry.

The GME Expansion Review Board and Advisory Group are responsible for developing a state strategic plan for expanding graduate medical education training programs, reviewing grant applications and the grants awarded pursuant to the GME Expansion Grant Program Act. A priority will be given to expanding programs and providers in rural and frontier communities, and to programs serving historically underserved communities, including Medicaid beneficiaries.
