PCP@Baylor was started in January 2011. As a chapter of the national Primary Care Progress initiative, the focus of our group is promoting awareness of issues relating to primary care as well as developing innovative strategies to the emerging challenges in this field. One way that we plan to accomplish this is by pairing up students, residents, and faculty to work on addressing problems in the delivery of primary care through the Primary Care Innovation Collaborative (PCIC). Also, our chapter is becoming especially involved in practice transformation projects, as many of Baylor physicians convert their practices into patient-centered medical homes.
The leadership team for the 2012-2013 school year has been assembled and we are working towards these goals. We will soon have a meeting (see the events calendar) for prospective members.
PCP@Bryn Mawr was started in 2010 by a group of postbaccalaureate premedical students who saw the need to promote primary care awareness among students and the local Bryn Mawr community. Given the ever-changing landscape of primary care in the United States, PCP@Bryn Mawr hopes to promote a better understanding of the various developments, challenges, and current initiatives surrounding this field of medical care. Our goal is to attract individuals among the undergraduate and postbaccalaureate student body who are passionate about primary health care, and work towards connecting with professionals in the field; opening doors to various opportunities in the area. This year, we plan to introduce events on campus to continue promoting a community-wide understanding of the current state of primary care, with the goal of fuelling student-led discussions on relevant topics.

Welcome to the Colorado chapter of Primary Care Progress! Our chapter provides a collaborative venue to organize all members of primary care teams on our campus and in our community to strive for continual success and improvement through the collective action of exchanging experience, ideas, mentorship, and research opportunities. With targeted initiatives we seek to foster enthusiasm for the development of innovative primary care in Colorado and refine Anschutz primary care training programs to be the best in the nation.
Our efforts started with a convening on August 15, 2013 on the Anschutz campus that introduced the chapter, explored the problems facing primary care delivery in our state, and organized trainee leaders according to our self-identified needs.
Since then, we have refined our 2013 goals to focus upon the following: 1. Work with the Family Medicine Interest Group to organize National Primary Care Week October 7-11 2. Conduct a needs assessment of Primary Care Training across disciplines on the Anschutz campus, including the family medicine, internal medicine, and pediatrics residencies, faculty in those departments, and the medical, PA, nur...
PCP@Duke was launched in April 2012 at a joint town hall meeting with our neighbors from PCP@UNC, and we are enthusiastic to join the grassroots movement in support of primary care. Our chapter hopes to capitalize on the Primary Care Progress national network to provide leadership and advocacy training, ideas for local innovation, and exposure to some of the brightest minds in primary care today.
We encourage involvement from students, residents, faculty, and staff from Duke University Schools of Medicine and Nursing, Duke University Health System, and our local community.
PCP@Georgetown was started in September 2010 by a group of undergraduates that shared a common interest in learning about primary care. Our goal is to increase awareness about issues in primary care and provide real opportunities to get involved at the undergraduate level. On campus, we organize talks given by primary care leaders and create exciting research and volunteer opportunities at local clinics. We also run a monthly journal club moderated by a doctor at the Georgetown School of Medicine to discuss issues in healthcare and especially in primary care. Though primarily composed of undergrads, the Georgetown Chapter is also open to medical students/other trainees, residents, and clinicians.
PCP@Georgetown is also very invested in creating exciting opportunities for trainees to get a taste of the innovating ideas clinics are employing to improve patient care.
PCP@Harvard was the founding chapter in the Primary Care Progress network and brings together trainees, educators and innovators spanning the Harvard primary care community. We seek to work both at the grassroots and with local institutions to continually strengthen our community and primary care education and delivery at Harvard.
Resident Collaborative in Primary Care Innovation
The Resident's Collaborative in Primary Care Innovation is a group of residents from Harvard teaching hospitals who share an interest in primary care, practice redesign, innovation and medical education. Our goal is to learn about exciting efforts to improve primary care delivery both locally and nationally. We've organized site visits to local clinics, informal discussions with leading national figures in innovation work, and small group settings for residents to share their interests, work and experiences. And of course, dinner is always provided!
