At its recent annual meeting, the American Medical Association (AMA) passed a new policy that will call for it to advocate for expanded GME funding from local, state, federal, and private sources to address the projected physician shortage.

As part of this, the AMA will seek more federal funding for the National Health Care Workforce Commission to produce data supporting the value of GME. The AMA also is adopting policies to study why some medical students don’t match to residency slots, and to urge Congress to reauthorize the Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education Program.
