IOM to Examine Graduate Medical Education

The Institute of Medicine’s Committee on Governance and Financing of Graduate Medical Education will hold a public meeting on December 19 and 20 in Washington, D.C.

Among the topics to be addressed during the meeting is “Understanding the Costs and Financing of GME.”

A number of proposals have been put forward in recent years to reduce Medicare GME payments to hospitals, and such a reduction is widely thought to be among the ideas policy-makers are considering to help pay to avoid the current fiscal cliff.

Medicare GME payments are a vital tool in helping many urban safety-net hospitals care for their large numbers of low-income and uninsured patients.
