Founded in 2010, Primary Care Progress is a national organization committed to building a stronger primary care system. Working with current and future healthcare professionals from across disciplines and career stages – from students and faculty to providers and health systems leaders – we offer leadership development and support that emphasizes relational skills, individual resilience, and advocacy. By providing the resources and community necessary to excel, we’re strengthening the individuals and teams at the heart of primary care, ultimately leading to sustainable models of care and better health for all.
Growing out of a grassroots primary care revitalization effort launched at Harvard Medical School, PCP has transformed over the years from an early alliance of school-based student teams and faculty advisors promoting primary care, into a national movement – a powerful network of leaders and change agents on the cutting edge of primary care delivery. We believe that advancing primary care reform demands more leaders – leading from where they stand – with a comprehensive set of approaches to affecting change. We’re committed to being that organization – that space, that community, that advocate – focused on developing the leaders who will change the system.
So whether we’re working with early career clinicians as they open a free clinic on campus, working with our partners to catalyze action on community health, or working with an executive leadership team as they navigate change, our mission is clear: to strengthen the community at the heart of primary care.
Driven by our mission. Led by our values.
We’re committed to reflecting the values we promote, and work hard to cultivate an organization grounded in:
Trust, Integrity, and an Eagerness to Learn
We engage really smart people, invest in them, and trust them to do their best.
Commitment to the Team and the Mission
We believe in the strength of diverse, engaged teams, working collaboratively to achieve great things.
Equity and Inclusion
We’re fearless advocates for health equity and access, championing a system of care that welcomes and respects all.
We’re proud to welcome – and reflect – a diversity of ideas, identities, and individuals, valuing the unique qualities and contributions of those we work for and those we work alongside. From recruitment to internal practices, the principles of equity and inclusion are embedded in the culture of PCP and integral to our success as an organization and our strength as a community of care.
