State-by-State Graduate Medical Education Data

What is Graduate Medical Education (GME)?

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 specifi c to their chosen specialty under the supervision of attending physicians and serve as part of a care team.
