Graduate Medical Education
The American Medical Association (AMA) is committed to ensuring that physicians-in-training are successful as they advance through their education cycle. In doing so, it offers the most complete, up-to-date information regarding graduate medical education (GME) for medical students and residents as well as educators, academic physicians, and residency/fellowship program directors.
Through a variety of tools and programs, physicians in training and educators have constant access to important AMA continuing medical education GME resources. Two examples are the free monthly AMA MedEd Update, which features news and updates on GME, and a Web-based educational series on Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education competency requirements, available in the AMA Education Center.
Obtain GME resources, links and information on career and specialty choice, residency program selection, board certification, membership organizations, and community characteristics, such as cost of living and child care resources.
In addition, the AMA offers an online database, FREIDA Online of nearly 10,000 accredited GME programs that you can search by specialty, state or training institution.
