Children's Hospitals Graduate Medical Education Program Overview

On July 19, the full House Appropriations Committee approved an FY 2018 spending bill that includes $300 million for the Children's Hospitals Graduate Medical Education (CHGME) program, the same amount as appropriated for FY 2017, and equal to the program’s full authorization. Children’s hospitals thank the members of the Committee for their continued bipartisan support. It is not known when the House may consider this bill on the floor, as GOP leaders are still determining their strategy for moving spending bills.
