Rural Track Program Designation
This report shows programs that have received ACGME designation as a Rural Track Program. This designation is intended to be consistent with the CMS definition of a “rural track” in the Code of Federal Regulations [413.79(k)]. The ACGME Rural Track Program designation is independent of any rural track designation by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and does not guarantee that a program will meet CMS eligibility requirements for GME or other financial support. If you have questions about the CMS rural track policy, contact your GME finance staff and/or the Prospective Payment System (PPS) hospital’s Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC).
