Protect GME funding!
With the impending "fiscal cliff" impasse and looming sequester, critical federal funding for residencies (or graduate medical education - GME) through Medicare is vulnerable. As the largest funder of GME, significant cuts to Medicare support for residencies may compromise access to care for patients and exacerbate the physician shortage. It is critical that Congress and the Obama Administration avoid GME cuts in any fiscal cliff compromise.
Contact your legislators and the administration today and urge them to protect GME!
