Georgia faces a critical shortage of health care professionals, particularly in primary care. Georgia Area Health Education Centers coordinate community-based training for health professional students in primary care specifically rural/underserved areas. The Preceptor Tax Incentive Program was created to entice physicians who are not compensated to train health professional students.
At the end of the presentation, attendees should be able to:
- Examine the process Georgia followed in creating the Preceptor Tax Incentive Program including developing a greater understanding of legislative processes in creating the bill and the challenges encountered during the process.
- Examine the mechanisms utilized to certify the eligible rotations and eligible practitioners for tax purposes.
- Recognize the critical role of the Georgia Statewide AHEC in collaborating partnerships with legislators, university leaders and state departments in creating a workable framework for reporting, managing, and auditing incentive dollars impacting the state’s revenue
