A bill to support GME training in children’s hospitals is headed to President Obama’s desk.
 
The Children’s Hospital GME Support Reauthorization Act of 2013, sponsored by U.S. Senators Bob Casey (D-PA) and Johnny Isakson (R-GA), provides $300 million annually for the next five years for GME training in freestanding children’s hospitals.
 
The program, which has been reauthorized several times since it was introduced in 1999, provides children’s hospitals with GME funding similar to what other teaching hospitals receive, according to a press release issued by the senators’ offices. The number of residency slots in children's hospitals has increased 45% since the program was enacted, according to the release.
 
The bill passed the U.S. House of Representatives on April 1 and will move to the President’s desk to be signed into law.
