Take Action - It's Not too Late for Congress to Save Graduate Medical Education

Because Congress has failed to avoid budget sequestration, critical funding that trains America's physicians through Graduate Medical Education (GME) is in danger. GME faces severe cuts in Medicare financing which will limit access to care for patients, jeopardize the ability of residency programs to train physicians, and increase additional physician shortages. We simply cannot afford to play politics with the future of medicine in America.

Congress must take proactive steps to prevent GME funding cuts and focus on long term solutions that address the financial stability of Medicare, maintain access to care for patients, and preserve critical funding for physician residency programs. For more information visit
