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. 

Mission Statement
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.
