GME Advocacy Coalition Thanks Congress for GME Support


February 2021—More than 80 organizations of the GME Advocacy Coalition, including AAIM, sent a letter to Congressional leaders January 27 to thank them for adding 1,000 new Medicare-supported GME positions in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021. Federal support for GME has been effectively frozen since 1997; these new slots will alleviate some of the pressure teaching hospitals have been facing and allow them to increase training. The residency positions supported by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 are a needed first step to train enough physicians to treat a growing and aging population.
