Neurosurgery Comments on Distribution of New GME Slots
On June 28, the AANS and the CNS joined a coalition letter led by the American Association of Medical Colleges to the CMS regarding the distribution of the 1,000 new GME slots provided in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260). The letter urges CMS to distribute the new GME positions in a way that ensures teaching hospitals can make meaningful increases in residency programs to produce more physicians.
