Fund more physician training spots, groups tell Congress
Modern Healthcare

The system of federally funding physician training is inadequate to meet current and future healthcare workforce needs, various medical groups recently told the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee. The committee last month had asked the medical community to weigh in on the topic.

Among suggestions for improving the system were adding at least 4,000 more federally financed GME positions and leveraging clinical reimbursement to influence geographic distribution and specialty composition.
