The Cornerstone Care Teaching Health Center (CCTHC) Family Medicine Residency Program accepts only applications submitted electronically through ERAS®, the Electronic Residency Application Service, a program of the American Association of Medical Colleges.
Cornerstone Care Teaching Health Center has been designed as one of several new teaching health centers in the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education program (THCGME) for 2013.
The HRSA THCGME is a five year program that will support an increased number of primary care medical residents trained in community-based settings across the country. This is an exciting opportunity to be involved in an innovative approach to osteopathic post medical education, in cooperation with a Federally Qualified Health Center and strong regional hospital participation.
Because of its Teaching Health Center designation, Cornerstone Care may contract with applicants directly outside the Match. However, Cornerstone Care has registered with ERAS as a new program and will utilize this service in the recruitment process.
