Information Collection Request Title: The Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education (THCGME) Program Eligible Resident/Fellow FTE Chart OMB 0915–0367—REVISION Abstract: The Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education (THCGME) Program, Section 340H of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, was established by Section 5508 of Public Law 111–148. Public Law 114–10, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) provided continued funding for the THCGME Program. The THCGME Program awards payment for both direct and indirect expenses to support training for primary care residents in community-based ambulatory patient care settings. The THCGME Program Eligible Resident/Fellow FTE Chart, published in the THCGME Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs), is a means for determining the number of eligible resident/fellow full-time equivalents (FTEs) in an applicant’s primary care residency program. The current THCGME Program Eligible Resident/Fellow FTE Chart received OMB clearance on September 16, 2013. HRSA is revising the chart to provide clearer projections over a longer period of time. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The THCGME Program Eligible Resident/Fellow FTE Chart requires applicants to provide data related to the size and/or growth of the residency program over previous academic years, the number of residents enrolled in the program during the baseline academic year, and a projection of the program’s proposed expansion over the next 5 academic years. It is imperative that applicants complete this chart and provide evidence of a planned expansion, as per the statute, THCGME funding may only be used to support an expanded number of residents in a residency program or to establish a new residency training program. Utilization of a chart to gather this important information has decreased the number of errors in the eligibility review process resulting in a more accurate review and funding process. In the proposed Number of respondents Form name Number of responses per respondent revisions, the content of the information collected has not changed; however, the order in which the information is presented on the chart has been modified to provide clearer projections over a longer period of time. This extended time frame would allow programs the flexibility to project the variations that occur during the natural expansion and scaling up of residency programs. This would better equip HRSA to make more accurate future funding projections. Likely Respondents: Teaching Health Centers applying for THCGME funding through a THCGME FOA, which may include new applicants and existing awardees. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and, to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

Information Collection Request Title: The Teaching Health Center 
Graduate Medical Education (THCGME) Program Eligible Resident/Fellow 
FTE Chart OMB 0915-0367--REVISION

    Abstract: The Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education 
(THCGME) Program, Section 340H of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, 
was established by Section 5508 of Public Law 111-148. Public Law 114-
10, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) 
provided continued funding for the THCGME Program. The THCGME Program 
awards payment for both direct and indirect expenses to support 
training for primary care residents in community-based ambulatory 
patient care settings. The THCGME Program Eligible Resident/Fellow FTE 
Chart, published in the THCGME Funding Opportunity Announcements 
(FOAs), is a means for determining the number of eligible resident/
fellow full-time equivalents (FTEs) in an applicant's primary care 
residency program. The current THCGME Program Eligible Resident/Fellow 
FTE Chart received OMB clearance on September 16, 2013. HRSA is 
revising the chart to provide clearer projections over a longer period 
of time.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The THCGME Program 
Eligible Resident/Fellow FTE Chart requires applicants to provide data 
related to the size and/or growth of the residency program over 
previous academic years, the number of residents enrolled in the 
program during the baseline academic year, and a projection of the 
program's proposed expansion over the next 5 academic years. It is 
imperative that applicants complete this chart and provide evidence of 
a planned expansion, as per the statute, THCGME funding may only be 
used to support an expanded number of residents in a residency program 
or to establish a new residency training program. Utilization of a 
chart to gather this important information has decreased the number of 
errors in the eligibility review process resulting in a more accurate 
review and funding process. In the proposed revisions, the content of 
the information collected has not changed; however, the order in which 
the information is presented on the chart has been modified to provide 
clearer projections over a longer period of time. This extended time 
frame would allow programs the flexibility to project the variations 
that occur during the natural expansion and scaling up of residency 
programs. This would better equip HRSA to make more accurate future 
funding projections.
    Likely Respondents: Teaching Health Centers applying for THCGME 
funding through a THCGME FOA, which may include new applicants and 
existing awardees.
    Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by 
persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the 
information requested. This includes the time needed to review 
instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and 
systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying 
information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and 
providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to 
a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and 
review the collection of information; and, to transmit or otherwise 
disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for 
this Information Collection Request are summarized in the table below.
