    The AAMC and 80 members of the Graduate Medical Education (GME) Advocacy Coalition sent a letter of support for the Resident Physician Shortage Reduction Act of 2023 (H.R. 2389) to the lead sponsors of the legislation. The letter to Reps. Terri Sewell (D-Ala.) and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.) emphasized the growing need for more physicians, particularly as the population continues to grow and age. The legislation, which was introduced on March 29, would provide 14,000 new Medicare-supported GME positions over seven years [refer to Washington Highlights, March 31].
