Graduate Medical Education, 2006-2007

Graduate Medical Education, 2006-2007 The American Medical Association and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) jointly sponsor and administer the National GME Census through GME Track, an Internet-based AAMC product, as well as maintain a database of training programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and of the residents and fellows in them. This database is updated annually by adding to it the approximately 19 000 new residents who match into programs through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) as well as from information collected through the AAMC's follow-up report of medical schools. From May 2006 until December 2006 we surveyed directors of programs accredited by the ACGME about educational characteristics of their training programs. Information about these programs is uploaded to FREIDA Online, an Internet-based public information source on GME programs that is available to medical students and residents. In July 2006 we surveyed program directors about their active, transferred, and graduated residents and fellows for academic year 2006-2007. We provided program directors with lists of residents and fellows from the database and asked the directors to confirm or modify the training status of trainees who were present in their programs the prior year; to add new physicians to their program whom we did not already have in our database; and to confirm, edit, or add demographic information. We surveyed 8502 active programs, of which 7616 (89.6%) completed the program survey and 7075 (83.2%) confirmed the status of all their active physicians-in-training, accounting for 97 705 (93.2%) of active trainees. An additional 132 programs (1.6%) confirmed some but not all of their trainees (accounting for 5050 trainees), 200 confirmed that they did not have any trainees (2.4%), 302 programs (3.6%) confirmed the status of nonactive trainees (graduates and transfers), but did not have any currently active trainees, and 793 programs (9.3%) did not confirm the status of any physician training in the program (including 627 programs that apparently did not have any active trainees). A total of 97.0% of all physicians in our database had their status confirmed (eg, active, graduated, withdrawn). Physicians whose status was not confirmed were “advanced” into the next year of training (n = 2124 [2.0% of active residents]) or “graduated” based on expected graduation date (n = 1137 [3.2% of graduated residents or fellows]).

Abstract

The American Medical Association and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) jointly sponsor and administer the National GME Census through GME Track, an Internet-based AAMC product, as well as maintain a database of training programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and of the residents and fellows in them. This database is updated annually by adding to it the approximately 19 000 new residents who match into programs through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) as well as from information collected through the AAMC's follow-up report of medical schools. From May 2006 until December 2006 we surveyed directors of programs accredited by the ACGME about educational characteristics of their training programs. Information about these programs is uploaded to FREIDA Online, an Internet-based public information source on GME programs that is available to medical students and residents. In July 2006 we surveyed program directors about their active, transferred, and graduated residents and fellows for academic year 2006-2007. We provided program directors with lists of residents and fellows from the database and asked the directors to confirm or modify the training status of trainees who were present in their programs the prior year; to add new physicians to their program whom we did not already have in our database; and to confirm, edit, or add demographic information. We surveyed 8502 active programs, of which 7616 (89.6%) completed the program survey and 7075 (83.2%) confirmed the status of all their active physicians-in-training, accounting for 97 705 (93.2%) of active trainees. An additional 132 programs (1.6%) confirmed some but not all of their trainees (accounting for 5050 trainees), 200 confirmed that they did not have any trainees (2.4%), 302 programs (3.6%) confirmed the status of nonactive trainees (graduates and transfers), but did not have any currently active trainees, and 793 programs (9.3%) did not confirm the status of any physician training in the program (including 627 programs that apparently did not have any active trainees).
