New $15 Million Initiative to Further Reimagine Physician Training

AMA News Release (10/30/18)

The American Medical Association (AMA) has announced a five-year, $15 million competitive grant project to improve residency training via better alignment with patients’ and communities' changing requirements and the workforce needs of the current and future healthcare system. The "AMA Reimagining Residency" seeks to address the widening disconnection between physician training programs and the skills they will need to practice in modern health systems. The grant will underwrite up to eight innovations among U.S. graduate medical education sponsors, medical schools, health systems, and/or medical specialty societies to uphold innovative projects to "promote systemic change in graduate medical education," according to AMA. Recipients will be allocated funding to improve the transition from medical school to residency to sustain continuity in professional development; ensure readiness for practice via modifications of residency curricula; and optimize the learning environment to support well-being among trainees, mentors, and staff.
