Hey guys.

Why is it that some perio residencies get GME funding and some do not? Is it because certain programs have components with affiliated hospitals vs. being dental school based? Does the GME money only come from Medicare or Medicaid or where, or on a state-by-state basis ? Or if a university based program works with a VA too ? I am trying to see if there is any way that dental school based periodontics residencies with tuition will be able to get any GME funding at all for their residents.

How in general do any perio residencies get GME funding ? Can anyone speculate on what the criteria is ?

Looking for more info on this topic!

Thank you!!
