AMA unveils initiative to transform residency

The American Medical Association (AMA) has unveiled a ‘Reimagining Residency Initiative’ that it developed to “transform residency training to better address the workforce needs of our current and future health care system.”

AMA says that five-year, $15-million grant program will support innovations that “provide meaningful and safe transitions from undergraduate medical education (UME) to graduate medical education (GME), establish new curricular content and experiences to enhance readiness for practice, and promote well-being in training.”

AMA will post a request for proposals for the initiative in early January. Selected applicants from U.S. GME sponsors, medical schools, health systems and specialty societies will receive funds to “support bold and innovative projects that promote systemic change in graduate medical education.”
