Children's Hospitals Graduate Medical Education
The Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education Payment
Program (CHGME) provides children’s hospitals with federal funding
to support training of pediatricians and pediatric specialists. CHGME
supports training at nearly 60 independent children’s teaching
hospitals. Hospitals receiving CHGME funds train 49 percent of all
pediatricians and 51 percent of all pediatric specialists.
