Graduate Medical Education PCB Passes House Select Committee

Proposed Committee Bill (PCB) SCHCWI 14-02 passed by unanimous vote in the House Select Committee on Health Care Workforce Innovation this week. The bill would require the Physician Workforce Advisory Council within the Department of Health to annually survey the state's medical schools and accredited GME institutions. The data collected would facilitate evaluation of the physician workforce and development of policies to create and expand GME programs in the state. The PCB has now been filed as House Bill 7109.
