Objectives: Freestanding children’s hospitals receive little to no Graduate Medical Education (GME) funding from Medicare because children’s hospitals have a low Medicare caseload. The purpose of the CHGME Payment Program is to compensate for the disparity in the level of Federal GME funding for freestanding children’s teaching hospitals versus other types of teaching hospitals. The CHGME program supports the education and training of future pediatricians, pediatric sub-specialists, and other non-pediatric residents in freestanding children’s teaching hospitals, including the training of residents in pediatric dentistry and pediatric psychology.
