In 2020, Indiana University School of Medicine was awarded a four-year, $12.1 million-dollar grant funded through the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) to create the Primary Care Reaffirmation for Indiana Medical Education (PRIME) program. PRIME is a four-year initiative focused on educational innovation for doctors who will serve our communities in the future. HRSA funding was focused on competitive proposals from states facing large shortfalls of physicians providing primary health care. PRIME aims to create graduates with a greater understanding of and appreciation for primary care, a better perception of the impact of racism on health equity, and a knowledge of the steps they can take to improve care for underserved and vulnerable populations.
PRIME and Progress

The PRIME Grant is creating new programs, enhancing the MD curriculum, considering enhanced approaches to assessment and piloting new learning experiences. With two years left on the grant, faculty and staff leaders will continue to use PRIME to promote a curriculum and environment that creates well-rounded, equity-focused and insightful medical school graduates.
