Description
 
This publication helps guide hospital executives through the complex regulations related to creating Rural Training Track Programs (RTTs), which allow urban hospitals, rural hospitals, and nonhospital clinical settings to form partnerships for residents to train in rural areas.
 
This publication includes answers to important questions, such as:
  • How much of a resident’s training must occur in a rural area for the urban hospital to be eligible to receive payment for residents in the RTT program?
  • How long does a hospital launching a RTT program have to establish its RTT Cap?
  • What is the difference in the RTT program cap formulation for residents rotating to rural nonhospital sites as opposed to rural hospital sites?
  • How are urban hospitals paid while the RTT program cap is being established?
  • What happens if a rural hospital in a RTT program is reclassified as urban?
