2 Reports on Medical Education
November 5, 2013
Two reports were issued Monday on medical education:
- The Blue Ribbon Commission for the Advancement of Osteopathic Medical Education issued a report calling for a shift in osteopathic medical education and residencies away from assumptions based on years of study, to an approach based on measuring "readiness" for residency (in medical school) and "readiness for practice" during residency.
- New York State received 20 percent of all of Medicare's graduate medical education (GME) funding while 29 states, including some with shortages of physicians, got less than 1 percent, according to a report published by researchers at the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services.
