(This amendment captures unsubscribed funds for the Medicaid medical residency program for fiscal year 2018. The 2016 General Assembly provided funding for a new program to fund 25 medical residency slots effective July 1, 2017, of which 13 were for primary care residencies and 12 for high need specialty residencies. Currently, 15 residency slots have been awarded to hospitals for fiscal year 2018. Typically decisions about medical residencies are made in early fall to begin sometime in the next year following graduation from medical school, consequently, funding for the unsubscribed slots will not be used in fiscal year 2018.)
