We hope your 2022 is off to a great start! AOGME kicked off the calendar year with a virtual conference in partnership with the Alliance of Independent Academic Medical Centers (AIAMC) focused on graduate medical education (GME) growth. Information about opportunities and strategies to expand GME were shared, including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) final rule establishing 1,000 new residency positions, the largest increase in more than 25 years. The AACOM Government Relations department continues to provide analysis and information regarding this unique opportunity. Learn more.

AOGME Residents and Fellows Council Resources for Medical Students

The AOGME Residents and Fellows Council (RFC) is actively hosting webinars and member events to engage both medical students and residents.

With close to 300 registrants, the webinar featured multi-disciplinary perspectives from residents and tips and strategies on how to prepare for the residency match. On Monday, February 28 at 7:00 PM ET, the RFC will host a webinar for medical students on how to succeed in core/away rotations.  Learn more about the RFC and encourage your trainees to get involved!
