The Institute of Medicine (IOM) will conduct a comprehensive, external review to study the governance and financing of GME in the 21st Century beginning June 1, according to a statement on IOM’s Web site. The statement says the review will “assess current regulation, financing, content, governance, and organization of U.S. GME and 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 review stems from a 2010 joint meeting of The Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation and the Association of Academic Health Centers, specifically calling for the IOM to conduct an independent study. The IOM notes several challenges that it hopes to meet over the duration of the study, including a rapidly aging and increasingly diverse patient population and underserved rural and urban populations.

According to the statement, IOM will hold a public meeting to solicit input later this year. To read more, click here.
