Assessing the governance and financing of U.S. graduate medical education to produce a more effective physician workforce

This project is an Institute of Medicine ad hoc consensus committee study entitled Governance and Financing of Graduate Medical Education. The study will: (1) assess current regulation, financing, content, governance, and organization of U.S. graduate medical education (GME); and (2) recommend how to modify GME to produce a physician workforce for a 21st century U.S. health care system that provides high-quality preventive, acute, and chronic care, and meets the needs of an aging and more diverse population. The study will assemble a committee of 18 members; conduct a planning meeting in spring 2012--with sponsors, congressional representatives (including the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission), other stakeholders, and national experts--to provide preliminary information and advice from public-private national perspectives; commission papers to explore up to three or more of the many issues important to meeting challenges of the GME system; conduct at least one workshop to gather public and stakeholder input into GME issues in this statement of task; and present its conclusions and recommendations in the form of a report that will have undergone peer review by the National Research Council's Report Review Committee.
