Project Title:

Governance and Financing of Graduate Medical Education
PIN: IOM-HCS-11-07        

Major Unit:

Institute of Medicine

Sub Unit: Board on Health Care Services

RSO: Eden, Jill

Subject/Focus Area: Health and Medicine

Project Scope
An ad hoc IOM committee will develop a report with recommendations for policies to improve graduate medical education (GME), with an emphasis on the training of physicians. Specific attention will be given to increasing the capacity of the nation’s clinical workforce that can deliver efficient and high quality health care that will meet the needs of our diverse population. To that aim, in developing its recommendations the committee will consider the current financing and governance structures of GME, the residency pipeline, the geographic distribution of generalist and specialist clinicians; types of training sites; relevant federal statutes and regulations; and the respective roles of safety net providers, community health/teaching health centers, and academic health centers.
