Primary Care Progress
Primary Care Progress (PCP) is a national organization dedicated
to innovation, advocacy, and education in primary care. We aspire to be
on the leading edge in primary care. At the University of Michigan, our current
chapter is made up of residents and faculty from the department of Pediatrics,
Internal Medicine, and Internal Medicine-Pediatrics, as well as medical students.
As residents within the University of Michigan Health System, we are dedicated
to raising awareness of the value of high-quality primary care and to
implementing innovative programs that aim to narrow the gap between ideal
primary care and the care that patients receive.
We hope to serve as a platform for all medical students, residents, faculty and
health care professionals (nurses, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, physician
assistants, public health workers) who are interested in progress and
innovation in primary care. We aim to have representatives from all the primary
care-oriented departments: family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics,
and obstetrics/gynecology. Through this interdisciplinary approach, we
hope to transform our primary care practices by introducing new models of
practice and care management, quality improvement, and patient safety.
We will have several events and ongoing projects every year, which will focus
on education, innovation, and advocacy.
