ABOUT PRIMARY CARE PROGRESS
Primary Care Progress (www.primarycareprogress.org) is an exciting, first-of-its-kind organization that specializes in energizing primary care communities. Chapters of PCP are forming at both UNC and Duke. Across the country, thanks to grassroots efforts with students and practitioners just like you, Primary Care Progress chapters have:
- Created “Innovation Collaboratives,” working relationships that pair faculty with medical students to engage in hands-on clinical innovation projects
- Formed primary care mentorship networks
- Led efforts to reform medical education, including creating primary care electives and supporting scholarly primary care research for credit
- Collaborated with the Center for Primary Care at Harvard Medical School (HMS) to better support and train students and residents interested in primary care. Since then, HMS has seen its match numbers into primary care residencies increase.
