Where our mission comes alive
We're proud to boast a national network of more than 50 student teams that bring together the thousands of individuals who make up the heart and hands of our work. Our teams - typically based on the campuses of academic medical institutions - are the space where students, trainees, and faculty promote primary care in their local communities, advance innovations in care delivery, and advocate for health equity and better access to care. Learn more in our Team Leader Guide and Faculty Advisor Guide.
Team activities include:
- Student Hotspotting, where interprofessional teams provide care and coordination to patients with complex health needs
- The Catalyst Program, where teams identify actionable primary care health needs in their local communities and coordinate stakeholders to advance innovation
- Our annual Gregg Stracks Leadership Summit, our signature training event for students and faculty nationwide
We support teams through powerful Relational Leadership™ curriculum, taught in Cohorts of multi-team learning collaboratives. Many former team members remain active and support the network as trainers, coaches, and mentors through opportunities in our Leadership Pathway.
