Children's hospitals thank Congress for including $340 million in annual FY 2020 funding for Children's Hospitals Graduate Medical Education (CHGME).
Please note that the resources highlighted above are past FY 2020 appropriations tools for members. In 2019, children's hospitals urged lawmakers to prioritize children's health and strengthen the critical CHGME program by providing it with $400 million in FY 2020. The current level of support provided for training kids' doctors through CHGME is only half that provided per trainee in the Medicare GME program. Sustaining pediatric training programs at children’s hospitals requires bolstering our national commitment.
