200.045 Needed Growth in Graduate Medical Education Programs

200.045

Needed Growth in Graduate Medical Education Programs: The Texas Medical Association supports the call for increases in graduate medical education positions and the need to provide direct funding to residency programs. To prevent the loss of medical graduates from the state as Texas medical school enrollments increase, there is the need for concomitant growth in graduate medical education training slots sufficient to allow for the retention of medical school graduates and a reasonable overage to allow other graduates to train in Texas. Workforce trends should be monitored on a continuing basis and periodically used to reassess needed growth in graduate medical education slots in the state (CME Rep. 5-A-07; amended CME Rep. 7-A-17).
