About GME Track

GME Track® is a resident database and tracking system that was introduced in March 2000 to assist GME administrators and program directors in the collection and management of GME data. GME Track contains the National GME Census, which is jointly conducted by the Association of American Medical Colleges and the American Medical Association and reduces duplicative reporting by replacing the AAMC's and AMA's previously separate GME surveys. The National GME Census is completed by residency program directors and institutional officials. The Census is comprised of two components: the Resident Survey and the Program Survey. Resident data and program data are confirmed annually, and the survey cycle can be updated between May and February, while the GME Track application is open.

Benefits of GME Track include:

  • Immediate and on-going access to biographical and training information
  • Ability to view and print resident information and program rosters

In addition, GME Track data are used by both organizations, in accordance with each organization’s privacy and data use policies, to provide medical students, residents, and the academic medicine community with information about specific programs through online search tools (e.g., FREIDA Online®, the AMA Residency & Fellowship Database®; and AAMC’s Careers in Medicine® Residency and Fellowship Program Search). Furthermore, GME Track data are used for research and educational purposes to inform policy analyses, to conduct research studies and outcomes evaluations, and to provide data reports and ad hoc data requests to qualified third parties.


GME Track Updates

Now that the GME Track season has started, here are a few updates that will be useful while completing the National GME Census. Thanks to suggestions from users, the following enhancements can be utilized this cycle:

  • GME Track now makes use of the AAMC Sign in, which allows users to create a user ID/password combination for use with many AAMC applications. GME Track and FindAResident now use the new sign in system; other AAMC applications will be implementing the new system gradually.
  • Medical schools have access to GME Track, with the ability to view and download their graduates' GME data.
