Indiana’s Graduate Medical Education Board, which was created during the 2015 legislative session, is about to award $5 million in grants to fund new residency program opportunities in hopes of keeping future physicians in state. The grants will be used by existing residency programs looking to expand, hospitals and health centers studying the feasibility of starting new programs, and burgeoning programs to cover developmental costs, such as hiring staff and buying equipment.

The increase in residency training positions is intended to break the bottleneck of physicians in training in Indiana. An increase in the rate of medical school graduates in recent years has outpaced residency growth. For example, enrollment at the Indiana University School of Medicine has increased by 30 % since 2007. Marian University in Indianapolis also opened a new medical school in 2013 that graduates 150 students a year.
