The National Institutes of Health awarded only $187 million in family medicine grants in 2006, or about 0.2% of total 2006 NIH awards.

A team of researchers that included Sean Lucan, a scholar affiliated with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Princeton, N.J., has published that finding in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

Half of medical school family medicine departments received no NIH grants in 2006, and representatives from family medicine departments held only 21 of the 5,464 NIH committee and subcommittee seats, the researchers report.
