$1,396,303 – Statewide UI Affiliated Family Medicine Residency Support  

This funding goes directly to each UI Affiliated Family Medicine Residency Program across Iowa.  Each of the seven residency programs receives $199,472 to support the ongoing operations at each site producing family medicine physicians.  The programs are located in Davenport, Cedar Rapids, Waterloo, Mason City, Sioux City and two in Des Moines (Iowa Lutheran and Broadlawns).  There are currently 51 positions for new residents each year or a three year total of 153 residents.

$279,806– Total Salaries and Benefits  

The University salaries and benefits total $279,806.  These positions provide support to the many needs of serving the Statewide Family Practice Programs across the state.

$74,770– General Expenses

The balance of $74,770 is for a range of services including the Visiting Professor Program.  This funding allows the statewide program to provide minimal compensation to faculty who temporarily leave their regular duties at the University of Iowa to lecture/present as visiting professors at the community-based programs across Iowa. In addition, travel is paid for the Visiting Professors as well as staff travel to serve the entire statewide system. This also includes funding for publications, postage, printing services, office supplies, telecommunications and other administrative support associated with this program.
