New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie proposed an 11% bump in funding for graduate medical education, Garden State officials said Friday.
The state's 71 hospitals would receive $100 million for GME in 2014, up from $90 million this year, according to the plan (PDF). The increase covers higher salaries, benefits and faculty costs.
The proposed GME funding ranges from $12,434 for 269-bed St. Mary's Hospital in Passaic to $16.4 million for 357-bed University of Medicine and Dentistry of (Newark) New Jersey-University Hospital.
