The goal of the five-year, $15-million Reimagining Residency grant program is to transform residency training to best address the workforce needs of our current and future health care system. It will support innovations that provide a meaningful and safe transition from UME to GME, establish new curricular content and experiences to enhance readiness for practice, and promote well-being in training.

Accelerating Change in Medical Education

The AMA’s new $15 million grant program to support GME innovation follows the success of the Accelerating Change in Medical Education initiative that has created a community of innovation aimed at creating the medical schools of the future.

The success of that initiative (involving $12.5 million in grants awarded to 32 medical schools and impacting 19,000 medical students, who will one day care for 33 million patients each year) prompted the AMA to now reimagine residency training.
