Graduate Medical Education Modernization Pilot

What We're Asking For

CAFM is asking Congress to modernize GME with a system in which Medicare and Medicaid (as well additional funding from private insurers) directly pay primary care residency programs. This system, explained in the below graphic, would do a more efficient job of ensuring that training can be adequately funded in an ambulatory setting.  Our proposal does realize that at least some training will likely be done inside of a hospital as well. The proposal calls for a purchasing agreement between the program and the hospital in this case. For a full description of the proposal, please see our policy paper, entitled Modernizing Primary Care Graduate Medical Education (PDF).
