Where our mission comes alive
We're proud to boast a national network of more than two dozen interprofessional healthcare 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. From the PCP Cohort to partner programs, our Action Network is designed to offer comprehensive, relational skills required for the next generation of providers to excel in today's rapidly changing, team-based healthcare system. We support teams through powerful Relational Leadership™ curriculum, with many former PCP Team members remaining active and supporting the network as Trainers and Coaches in our Leadership Pathway.
Cohorts are the learning space where PCP Team Leaders develop their Relational Leadership™ practices while making an impact on their communities. Each academic year, every PCP Team decides on their action-oriented and longitudinal project and to advance their own initiatives, like hosting case conferences on interprofessional teaming, advocating for the integration of leadership into their institutions’ curriculum, or creating student-run free clinics that serve the most vulnerable members of their communities. They are a set of academic-year collaboratives of three to five teams, where participants and their Faculty Advisors gain the essential skills, knowledge, experience, and strategic support necessary to become change makers. Led by a mentor from PCP’s Leadership Pathway, Cohort participants learn and test new skills through coaching calls and case consultation, along with a group of fellow teams from around the country.
Applications to join the PCP Cohort are open each Spring and are required for every current and prospective team to complete every year. The application period for the 2019-2020 academic year is now closed.
