Primary Care Pathway

The Primary Care Pathway is a flexible program designed to provide clinical experiences and education that support residents in the pursuit of excellence in primary care.  As part of the pathway, residents are invited to attend educational sessions over the noon conference hour that focus on different aspects of primary care like the similarities and differences between community and academic primary care, billing in primary care, and how to go about a job search for primary care physicians.  Residents in the primary care pathway are given scheduling priority for rotations that prepare them for primary care like sports medicine, dermatology, women’s health, and the Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) clinic.  Residents are also paired with a mentor who shares similar interests and career goals to help them as they work through this pathway.
