The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences has received $900,000 in federal funding for its training program for new primary care physicians at its regional center in Fort Smith known as UAMS West.

The grant from the Affordable Care Act was announced Tuesday and will be used to pay salaries, benefits and other costs associated with the training. It will also be used to add two new resident physicians and to continue funding for four other physicians added during the past two years.

UAMS West will not have 30 residents in its training program.

The $900,000 is part of $83.4 million in funding to 60 teaching health centers like UAMS West nationwide.
