Seven U.S. senators urged the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to conduct an independent review of GME funding and governance.

In a December 21 letter written to IOM President Harvey Fineberg, MD, PhD, the senators stated the current GME system is “under increasing stress” and projects to a future in healthcare with many concerns. The letter asks for IOM personnel to address several issues, including potential GME reforms, uneven distribution in funding across states, and accreditation.

The senators hope to receive recommendations on statutory, regulatory, and accreditation changes by this year’s third quarter.
