GNYHA recently released the latest edition of the GME Data Brief.  Each edition of the series highlights important graduate medical education (GME) and physician workforce data findings for GNYHA members and other interested stakeholders.

This GME Data Brief examines the number of urban and rural teaching hospitals in the United States. The Medicare program categorizes teaching hospitals as “urban” or “rural” using Office of Management and Budget delineations—a teaching hospital located in an area with a population of 50,000 or more is generally designated as urban, and teaching hospitals located in areas with populations below 50,000 are designated as rural.
