PCP Leadership Summit
We're igniting a movement in primary care
The work of primary care professionals is more important now than ever. With so many unknowns in healthcare, we know one thing won’t change — the impact of great health providers at the heart of care. But in an evolving system of delivery, practitioners at every career stage and in every discipline demand new skills that bridge clinical innovation and authentic connection. At Primary Care Progress, we're strengthening the community at the heart of care through leadership development and community building. This mission comes alive in our:
- Interactive, action-oriented professional development workshops and programs
- Relational Leadership Institute
- National Action Network of graduate school teams
- Signature annual training event for healthcare students, residents, and their faculty advisors: the PCP Leadership Summit, created in 2012 in honor of the late Gregg Stracks.
PCP's annual Leadership Summit is an invitation-only, two-day training bringing together faculty, student, and professional leaders from across PCP's national network. Frequently regarded by participants as the best leadership training program in healthcare, the Summit consists of hands-on, interactive sessions that teach early- and mid-career professionals how to thrive in a rapidly evolving healthcare environment by building leadership competencies critical for team building, advocacy, and change management.
In response to the many unprecedented circumstances and uncertainties presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, PCP will be moving student programming to an entirely virtual format, including the 2020 PCP Leadership Summit and 2021 Student Action Network Mid-Year Event.

About Gregg Stracks
The summit honors the late Gregg Stracks. A born teacher, visionary, and optimist, Gregg's commitment to cultivating leadership and building community was the foundation for PCP's leadership development efforts. Gregg was a gifted psychologist with the ability to see the best in others, working closely with them to draw out skills and strengths in interpersonal connection, effective communication, and problem solving.
In addition to co-founding PCP, he worked with the Clinton Foundation and the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. His passion, humility, and humor touched the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing him.
