Eliminated funding for the Teaching Health Centers (THC) program could jeopardize the training for 550 residents, according to a new report released this week.
 
The program, which aims to increase the number of primary care residents trained in community-based settings, has not yet had new funding appropriated by Congress for the 2015 fiscal year. The report warns that this loss of funding could disrupt the training for residents in underserved areas in 27 states and the District of Columbia.
 
The report estimates that current THC residents provide care to more than a million patients and will provide care to nearly a million patients a year upon completion of their residencies.
