COGME makes recommendations to the Secretary of HHS (Secretary) and Congress on policy, program development, and other matters of significance as specified by section 762 of Title VII of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act. Issues addressed by COGME include (1) the nature and financing of medical education training; (2) the development of performance measures and longitudinal evaluation methods of medical education programs; (3) foreign medical school graduates; (4) the supply and distribution of the physician workforce in the United States, including any projected shortages or excesses; (5) deficiencies in databases of the supply and distribution of the physician workforce and postgraduate programs for training physicians; and (6) appropriation levels for certain programs under Title VII of the PHS Act. Additionally, COGME encourages entities providing graduate medical education to conduct activities to voluntarily achieve the recommendations of the council.
