What Impact Will Unified GME Accreditation Have on Rural-focused Physician Residencies?


Description:

The impending unification in 2020 of allopathic and osteopathic graduate medical education (GME) under a single accreditation system has uncertain implications for small and rural-focused residency programs. This study quantified the availability of rural-centric residency training (required rural training of at least 8 weeks) in the rurally-relevant specialties of pediatrics, internal medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, emergency medicine, surgery, anesthesia, and psychiatry. Findings include the distribution of rural vs. urban training locations and rural-specific content of rural-centric residency programs.
