The Community-Based Medical Education Act of 2014, unveiled by Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), would help train 550 medical residents annually in rural and underserved areas.
 
If passed into law, it would provide $420 million for continued funding of the Teaching Health Center (THC) program until 2019. The program is set to expire next year. After 2019, the legislation would establish a permanent funding stream under Medicare for Primary Care Teaching Centers, which will continue to focus on training primary care in rural and underserved area.
