GME Reform Report: Report and Summary of AAHC Regional Roundtable Series on Graduate Medical Education Reform

(2015) After the release of the IOM report on GME in July 2014, many members urged AAHC to convene a meeting to discuss the Association’s role, if any, given the IOM’s recommendations. It was made clear that AAHC could make an important contribution by serving as a convener on the topic—and should do so with the larger perspective of the healthcare workforce and the changing healthcare delivery system in mind. A regional approach to this effort was chosen to gain knowledge that is specific to various parts of the country as well as to limit the discussion groups to manageable sizes. This report summarizes the major themes that emerged from these discussions.
