How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The ACTPCMD prepares annual reports, as directed in the statute, to be submitted to the Secretary of the HHS; the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions of the Senate; and to the Committee on Energy and Commerce of the House of Representatives. The ACTPCMD will also, as needed, produce letters to the Secretary, DHHS and to Congress on specific topics of interest that may be of a time sensitive basis and therefore, cannot be included in an actual report.
How is membership balanced?*The ACTPCMD is composed of members from practicing health professions engaged in training; leaders from health professional organizations; faculty from health professions educational institutions; and health professionals from public or private teaching hospitals or community-based settings. The ACTPCMD consists of 17 available slots for members appointed by the Secretary. At least 75 percent of the members are practicing health professionals from the disciplines of primary care medicine and dentistry, including physicians (allopathic and osteopathic), physician assistants, nurses, general, pediatric, and public health dentists, and dental hygienists.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The ACTPCMD generally holds two meetings per year. In FY2018, two in-person meeting were held on May 3-4, 2018 and September 10-11, 2018. The May 2018 meeting addressed recommendations on a systematic approach to Well-being and mitigating burnout in trainees, faculty and practitioners. The September 2018 meeting addressed recommendations for Title VII section 747 and 748 programs including appropriation levels and broader structural support.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*There is no other Committee in HRSA or in DHHS that has the same charge as the ACTPCMD. The ACTPCMD provides advice and recommendations pertaining to policy and program development and other matters of significance concerning the activities under Title VII, Sections 747 and 748, of the Public Health Service Act, as amended by Public Law 105-392, the Health Professions Education Partnership Act of 1998. The ACTPCMD provides counsel and recommends action on a wide spectrum of health care training policy issues, problems, solutions, and strategies required to address HRSA's mission. The ACTPCMD assists the Administrator of HRSA in developing plans and policies and provides guidance on the methods and resources required to address the current environment of the education and training of the nation's primary care health workforce of physicians, physician assistants and general and pediatric dentists and dental hygienists. The desired input can only be obtained from leading experts who are actively engaged in the education and training of the nation's future primary care workforce.
Why close or partially close meetings?N/A, all meetings associated with this advisory committee are open to the public.
Recommendation RemarksThe Advisory Committee on Training in Primary Care Medicine and Dentistry (ACTPCMD) was authorized in 1998 and has since produced thirteen reports which were sent forward to both the Secretary, DHHS, and to Congress.

The advice and recommendations provided by the ACTPCMD is crucial to the successful education and training of a future primary care workforce that is traditionally more willing to serve a predominantly underserved and disadvantaged population.
