American Association of Medical Colleges http://ripr.org en Graduate Medical Education Funding Showdown? http://ripr.org/post/graduate-medical-education-funding-showdown <p>The Association of American Medical Colleges has launched a new <a data-mce-="" href="https://www.aamc.org/download/305314/data/doc-shortage-ad.pdf">ad campaign</a>, running in newspapers near the sites of upcoming presidential debates, calling for an increase in funding for graduate medical education. The group is trying to draw attention to what it sees as a crisis in the making: the current limit on the number of federally funded residency programs could, it says, lead to doctor shortages. It's just the latest in a series of movements on the GME front. Tue, 09 Oct 2012 18:00:00 +0000 Kristin Gourlay 4685 at http://ripr.org
