More about Germane

Your Trusted Advisors in Academic Medicine

Founded over 20 years ago, Germane Solutions and its team of subject matter experts have grown to become the preeminent consulting firm within Academic Medicine and is committed to tackling the biggest challenges across the healthcare industry. Through their proven strategies and technology-enabled solutions, they regularly help sponsoring organizations create and continuously improve the most successful clinical training programs in the country.

Though the significance of GME can sometimes be overlooked due to its scholastic nature, it remains a fundamental mechanism in providing quality healthcare to large portions of our country’s population. Germane Solutions is committed to helping our clients recognize the true impact that GME can have on an institution and its surrounding community. Their team not only helps programs reach their educational, operational, and financial potential, but works to ensure that each program plays an important role in the achievement of the parent institution’s own short and long-term goals.

Expanding year-over-year since its founding, Germane is extremely grateful for the opportunity to engage with so many great healthcare organizations across the country. In collaboration with client partners, it’s helped to create over 7,500 annual graduate training positions, worked to preserve a significant number of existing positions that were at-risk, and supported institutions achieve financial and operational growth and sustainability.


Our success is due to our long-term relationships with organizations like yours.
