WASHINGTON, DC – The Health Subcommittee, chaired by Rep. Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), announced a hearing for Wednesday, May 23, 2018, at 10:15 a.m. in room 2322 of the Rayburn House Office Building. The hearing is entitled, “Reauthorization of the Children’s Hospital Graduate Medical Education Program.”

Next week, #SubHealth will review H.R. 5385, the Children’s Hospital GME Support Reauthorization Act of 2018, authored by #SubHealth Ranking Member Gene Green (D-TX) and #SubHealth Chairman Burgess. H.R. 5385 will reauthorize the Children’s Hospital Graduate Medical Education (CHGME) program for five years. The authorization for the program expires on September 30, 2018.

“This vital program supports the training of thousands of doctors, and helps ensure access to quality health care for children all across the country,” said #SubHealth Chairman Burgess. “Just as we extended critical funding for the teaching health centers earlier this year, we must complete our work and ensure this important program can also continue to do its work in our communities.”
