Dear AJPM&R readers,   

This issue of the AJPM&R includes an AAP position paper on graduate medical education (GME).  New legislation may have a significant impact on our health care system.  It is extremely important to avoid changes that may be deleterious to our GME programs.  Readers will also enjoy reading the article by Stucki et al on a proposal to integrate information on functioning in national health information systems. Function, as an outcome, is as important as the more traditional morbility and mortality.
