Excerpts from the RFP:

Purpose

The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) # 58821021 is to solicit applications that will enable the Iowa Department of Public Health (referred to as Department) to select the most qualified sponsor(s) to develop quality plans compliant with this RFP to establish or expand medical residency training programs, with a focus on expanding emergency medicine, obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN), and psychiatry. The Medical Residency Training State Matching Grants Program, based on Iowa Code 135.176, was established to provide greater access to health care by increasing the number of practicing physicians in Iowa through the expansion of residency positions in Iowa. The Department shall provide funding to sponsors of accredited graduate medical education residency programs for the establishment or expansion of medical residency training programs that will increase the number of residents trained.

2019 House File 532, Section 1 included additional criteria for preference in awarding sponsors of this Funding Opportunity. Candidates who are residents of Iowa, attended and earned an undergraduate degree from an Iowa college or university, or attended and earned a medical degree from a medical school in Iowa will be considered for preference in awarding grants within the Medical Residency Training State Matching Grants Program, along with the previous preference in the residency specialty. House File 532, Section 2 adds a requirement that the residency program offers residency participants the opportunity to participate in a rural rotation to expose the resident to the rural areas of the state. This RFP uses this additional criteria in the selection process. Refer to Section 4 for more details.

2020 House File 2197, Section 1 defined “primary care” as including psychiatry, obstetrics, gynecology, family medicine, internal medicine, and emergency medicine. Administrative rules are currently being revised to incorporate this revision.
