Coalition for Physician Accountability’s UME to GME Review Committee Seeking Public Comment on New Recommendations

April 26, 2021

Last summer, the Coalition for Physician Accountability created the Undergraduate Medical Education (UME) to Graduate Medical Education (GME) Review Committee (UGRC) and charged them with the task of recommending solutions to identified challenges in the UME-GME transition. Some of these challenges included systemic bias, high levels of stress on learners and program directors, increasing financial costs, and much more. This is the latest resource produced by the Coalition. A full list can be found on the Coalition for Physician Accountability page.

The preliminary recommendations are organized around 12 themes: 

  • Oversight
  • Advising of Learners
  • Competencies and Assessments 
  • Away Rotations
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Medicine
  • Application Process
  • Interviewing
  • Matching Process
  • Faculty Support Resources
  • Post-Match Transition to Residency
  • Policy Implications
  • Research Questions

The UGRC has released its report, which contains background materials and information about the UGRC’s formation, structure, and process, and includes the committee’s 42 preliminary recommendations. The call for feedback on these recommendations will be open from April 26 to May 26, 2021.

Submit your feedback to the UGRC.
