AAIM Comments on Ideal State of UME-GME Transition for COPA


January 2021—In response to a December 8 request from the Coalition for Physician Accountability UME-to-GME Review Committee seeking organizational input on the “ideal state” of UME-GME transition, an Alliance joint committee-council writing group developed a statement that emphasized the necessity for collaboratively developed assessment and transition tools, a commitment to transparency at the program and applicant levels, support for holistic review and for international medical graduates, and the importance of professional identity formation.  AAIM thanks the writing group for its efforts:  Richard L. Alweis, MD, Stefanie R. Brown, MD, FACP, FAAP, Chayan Chakraborti, MD, FACP, SFHM, Shobhina G. Chheda, MD, MPH, Aashish K. Didwania, MD, Matthew M.
