Excerpts from the RFP:

Purpose

The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) # 58823012 is to solicit applications that will enable the Iowa Department of Public Health (referred to as Department) to select the most qualified applicant 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 Iowa legislative session, 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. 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 Iowa legislative session, House File 2197, Section 1 defined “primary care” as including psychiatry, obstetrics, gynecology, family medicine, internal medicine, and emergency medicine.  

Changes were made to Iowa Code 135.176 as a result of 2021 Iowa Acts HF 891. The Iowa Code changes and the Notice of Intended Action (NOIA) of amendments to administrative rule chapter 641--108 were used to set the criteria within this RFP.  The Chapter 108 administrative rules reflecting these changes will be effective on March 16, 2022.   

2021 Iowa legislative session, House File 891 expanded Iowa Code section 135.176 to include medical residency liability costs as an expense for which matching grants may be awarded for a period beginning July 1, 2021 until June 30, 2026. The Chapter 108 administrative rules reflecting these changes will be effective on March 16, 2022.   

The Department is actively working to strengthen the capacity to address health inequities in Iowa. Health equity is defined as supporting opportunities for everyone to live the healthiest life possible through the reduction of barriers in environmental, social, economic and other conditions which impact health. This program promotes health equity by providing greater access to healthcare and exposing residents to rural areas of the state through completion of a rural rotation.
