A new report by the Safety Net Hospital Alliance of Florida (SNHAF) reveals that the number of residency slots in the state has grown by 736 since 2013, a 19% increase. In 2013, the state legislature appropriated $80 million in recurring state and matching federal funds to create the Medicaid Residency Program, which funded nearly 4,000 residency slots. The program now funds more than 4,600 slots.

Last year, the state legislature appropriated $100 million for the GME Startup Bonus Program and the GME Retention Programs, which provide hospitals with one-time $100,000 bonuses for every position they create in a shortage specialty and directs funds as retention incentives to hospitals that have slots in shortage areas.
