ABSTRACT
The author comments on a proposal from U.S. President Barack Obama's administration that would eliminate funding for a program that trains future pediatricians and pediatric specialists in the country. According to the author, this proposed budget cut poses a threat to the healthcare of every child in the U.S. She explains the existence of the Children's Hospital Graduate Medical Education Payment Program (CHGME). She points out that the shortage crisis for pediatricians and pediatric specialists will worsen without CHGME.
