Many counties around Wyoming continue to lack sufficient health care access, and a significant part of this problem is due to a shortage of physicians. In order to increase the number of physicians in Wyoming, Kim Deti with the Wyoming Department of Health says they are offering grant monies:
Applications for The Wyoming Physician Recruitment Grant Program are currently being accepted. Hospitals, clinics, physicians and other appropriate Wyoming agencies are invited to apply for up to $80,000 in state funds to support physician recruitment efforts.
Applications are due by September 10. Awards are expected to be highly competitive.
