Primary Care Leadership Pathway

The Primary Care Leadership Pathway (PCLP) is a pathway embedded within the categorical residency that aims to develop primary care physicians and leaders in internal medicine.  Residents can opt to participate in this longitudinal curriculum, which will offer the opportunity for unique elective experiences geared at developing ambulatory clinical skills and leadership skills.  This is complimented by a mentoring relationship with an established primary care faculty member to help with career guidance.  Quarterly meetings focusing on non-clinical skills such as practice management and evidence-based medicine are also provided in this pathway.  Our long-term vision is to develop a community of residents passionate about primary care within the overall categorical program; through their specialized training and camaraderie, we seek to create the next generation of physician-leaders in primary care.
