State-by-State Data on Graduate Medical Education

A group of five doctors stand in a circle having a conversation

All medical school graduates must complete a period of GME, or residency training, to be licensed to practice medicine in the United States. GME comprises the second phase — after medical school — of the formal education that prepares doctors for medical practice. During residency, doctors learn skills and techniques specific to their chosen specialty under the supervision of attending physicians and serve as part of a care team. The AAMC has compiled data on Medicare-supported GME for each state.
