Graduate Medical Education That Meets the Nation's Health Needs 

This new report, from the Institute of Medicine, reviews the goals, governance, and financing of the graduate medical education system. The report focuses on the extent to which the current system supports or creates barriers to producing a physician workforce ready to provide high-quality, patient-centered, and affordable health care and identifies opportunities to maximize the leverage of federal funding toward these goals. Graduate Medical Education examines the residency pipeline, geographic distribution of generalist and specialist clinicians, types of training sites, and roles of teaching and academic health centers. 

These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on July 29, 2014 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press
