On November 9, 2015, HMA Information Services hosted the webinar, “The Residency Program of the Future: How Healthcare Reform is Impacting Medical Training and Graduate Medical Education.”
Residency programs are about to change dramatically, driven by healthcare reform, Medicaid expansion, the pressing need for more primary care physicians, and the implementation of Patient-Centered Medical Homes and other population health management initiatives. The future impact of these initiatives on residency training remains unclear, but there is no shortage of ideas and proposals.
During this webinar, HMA medical education experts Margaret Kirkegaard, MD, Maurice Lemon, MD, and Jeffrey Ring, PhD, provide a status report on Graduate Medical Education (GME), outline various proposals and policy initiatives, and discuss mandated imperatives for residency training programs to directly address health disparities. Listen to the replay and:
- Deepen your understanding of new academic and clinical pressures facing residency training, including the shifting balance between specialty training and primary care.
- Consider strategies for residency training programs to develop in an era of Patient-Centered Medical Homes and population health management.
- Recognize the impact of GME changes on hospitals, including the ACGME Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER) Standards, and explore how hospitals must be more involved in medical training programs, in light of operational changes driven by Medicaid expansion and the continued shift to Medicaid managed care from fee-for-service Medicaid.
- Learn how Medicaid innovations and reforms – driven in part by 1115 waivers and DSRIP – impact residency programs.
