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

Counts of MD- and DO-granting institutions are taken from the accrediting bodies for these institutions, the Liaison Committee on Medical Education and the American Osteopathic Association. Teaching hospitals counts, data on residents in training, and data on Medicare funding for residency is based on AAMC analysis of FY2018 Medicare cost report data, HCRIS Q2 2020 release. Where FY2018 wasn’t available, FY2017 data was used.
