Future Direction of U.S. Graduate Medical Education Is Focus of Grant to IOM
Macy Foundation Helps Foot the Bill for Comprehensive GME Study
By News Staff
According to Macy Foundation President George Thibault, the current GME model has served the country and the world well, but it now needs to evolve rapidly to keep up with an explosion of change.
"We hope the IOM study will provide a roadmap that helps move us closer toward a graduate medical education system that ensures an effective physician workforce for the future," said Thibault.
The IOM study represents another step in an ongoing effort by the Macy Foundation, the Association of Academic Health Centers and other GME stakeholders to push reform. A conference of experts held in October 2010 and another in May 2011 produced reports and recommendations on how to go about reforming GME in the United States.
