Studies show that residents trained in rural and underserved areas are more likely to stay in those communities to practice. It’s getting residents there that organizations often struggle with.
Setting up a Graduate Medical Education (GME) program can help. Not only can a GME program help address your staffing issues, but it also can enhance and expand the services you offer patients and be a crucial component to your Medicare and Medicaid risk strategies.
