CHGME Policy Position

The Children's Hospital Graduate Medical Education (CHGME) program supports children’s health care by providing freestanding children's hospitals with federal graduate medical education support similar to the funding that other teaching hospitals receive through Medicare. This program is vital to the future of pediatric care in this country as CHGME recipient hospitals, just one percent of all hospitals, train nearly half of all pediatricians.

Continued strong federal funding for CHGME is essential to maintaining this vital investment in children's health care. The Children’s Hospital Association urges Congress and the President to provide sustainable funding for the program.
