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
