The New York State Council on Graduate Medical Education (COGME), which comprises leaders from the State’s medical education community, recently convened a plenary session to discuss medical education initiatives affecting the State’s teaching hospitals. COGME makes medical education and training policy recommendations to the New York State Department of Health (DOH). During the panel discussion, GNYHA, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Mount Sinai Health System, Northwell Health, and New York-Presbyterian Hospital discussed GME’s role during the COVID-19 response last spring and how it will change in response efforts moving forward. During a panel discussion, Council members and attendees also shared ideas for including residents in flexible staffing structures that could be implemented to respond to COVID-19 surges. DOH staff reviewed the Governor’s proposed budget provisions related to GME and discussed plans for future COGME meetings.
