In a letter recently sent to the House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce, the American Medical Association (AMA) outlined its suggestions of how to improve the country’s GME system.
 
The AMA suggested the following improvements:
·         Removing the existing cap on publicly funded residency positions, which was based on statistics from 1996
·         Increasing the number of GME positions to address future physician workforce, regional, and specialty needs
·         Promoting educational experiences in the broadest range of sites
·         Exploring additional sources of GME funding, including states and all-payer models, to ensure adequate and stable support for medical education programs
