What is a PCP Chapter?
Bring together interdisciplinary members of a local primary care community
Work together to promote the value of primary care and create opportunities for clinical innovation
Take action on local campaigns to improve primary care training and delivery
Each chapter works closely with PCP Field staff to identify and plan goals and strategies specific to their local school. Examples include receiving academic credit for a Primary Care Innovation Collaborative (PCIC), working with a university hiring committee to make sure that two family medicine faculty positions are filled, and creating rotations in Patient-Centered Medical Homes. Primary Care Progress chapters also receive a wide array of support, resources, and benefits from the national PCP team including strategic outreach assistance, advice on chapter development, community activity toolkits, seed funding, and leadership trainings. Take a look at some of our chapters in action as they spread the word about the importance of their work in primary care revitalization.
