UME-GME Review Report

The Coalition for Physician Accountability UME-GME review report looks at the transition from medical school to residency, information standards and physician accountability.

The Coalition for Physician Accountability released its 276-page UME-GME review report on August 26th.

The document and the committee report focuses on the transition from medical school to residency, information standards and availability. 

The discussion stems from discussions of overreliance on USMLE scores in applicant screening in 2018, but an offshoot of that was the examination of how to more successfully transition between UME to GME.

Many of the proposals within the document are about setting information and communication standards to help both residents and GME programs make better, and more accurate selections of people, interviews, and career paths.

They describe more of an ideal state for the UME-GME transition, than an actual working document to create the standards and information flow that would be required at institutional or national levels.

As always, funding is likely an issue as well. Other direct healthcare provider areas are expanding at a pace far in excess of physician rates, yet GME is still tied to Medicare funding and slot allocations not directly controlled by either universities or hospitals, or tied to historical numbers.

The NBME survey in Appendix E starts on page 139 of the document, and includes the open comments left on each of the 34 recommendations from the panel.

We make institutional remote learner management easy. 

Med-Challenger allows institutional training programs and clinical groups the ability to create assignable and trackable custom exams using Med-Challenger content or their own (or even blend the two).  From the ability to curate "favorites" in custom exam creation or the ability to track "at a glance" performance on assignments or MOC requirements allows faculty and administrators to save tons of time.  At the same time, students realize increased proficiency and exam scores and clinical staff can stay up-to-date and certified more easily.
