Two programs in Florida are providing teaching hospitals one-time startup funding for expanding or starting new residencies. The GME Startup Bonus Program and the GME Retention Programs distribute $100 million in funding appropriated by the state legislature.

One of the beneficiaries of the funding in University of Florida Health Jacksonville, which received $400,000 to fund a fourth psychiatry residency position for the next four years.  A partnership between Wolfson Children’s Hospital, Mayo Clinic, and Nemours Children’s Specialty Care, all located in Jacksonville, also expanded its pediatric anesthesiology fellowship from three to four slots using $100,000 in state funding.
