The next generation of health professionals has a critical role to play in transforming our primary care system. That’s why we’re engaging them now – preparing them to transition from the classroom to the clinic with the skills to take better care of their patients and better care of themselves.
For Primary Care Progress, our national Action Network of more than two dozen interprofessional, student-led teams, is where we roll out new curricula, test primary care innovations on campuses and in local communities, and prepare future clinicians to take the helm of primary care transformation. For students and faculty, our Action Network offers a range of options to learn, experiment, give back, and connect.
Ready to get involved?
The first step to joining the Action Network is creating a team – identifying a core group of passionate, like-minded primary care allies from across disciplines and at a range of stages in clinical training. Once your team is together, the sky’s the limit. You can work on a project of your choosing, like starting a student-run free clinic or hosting a series of campus conversations about innovation in care delivery, or you can plug into our established programs.
Current initiatives include the Catalyst Project and the Interprofessional Student Hotspotting Learning Collaborative.
