Impending physician shortages, particularly in underserved communities, make the growth of medical residency programs critical to the future health of our country. Several significant legal developments in the world of Medicare graduate medical education funding occurred in 2020 that affect existing teaching hospitals, as well as hospitals that wish to become teaching hospitals.
