The Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation is calling for major changes to the U.S graduate medical education that would better align the program with the current medical needs of society. With technology, healthcare costs, and illnesses all on the rise, the Macy Foundation is encouraging a training program that shakes up the status quo by focusing on competency instead of hours of training, and puts residents in a more diverse, non-hospital healthcare setting. One of the biggest changes would be involving the public in the decision-making process, since the program is funded with public dollars. For more information, visit the Macy Foundation.
