Primary Care Faculty Development Initiative

Now that the redesign of primary care is well underway, key needs of new generation frontline physicians have emerged, and some of them are not imbedded in our current internal medicine, pediatrics and family medicine residencies. The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Bureau of Health Professions (BHPr), Division of Medicine and Dentistry (DMD), the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM), the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP), the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM), and the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation have worked together to provide an a pilot program designed to help educators transform their clinics and educational models.

The Primary Care Faculty Development Initiative (PCFDI) pilot project (2012-2014) brought together faculty teams from family medicine, internal medicine, and pediatric residencies from the same institution to work together to train residents in transformed primary care practices. The initiative was piloted with 36 faculty participants from 12 primary care residencies at four institutions: Advocate Lutheran General Hospital (Park Ridge, IL); University of Minnesota; University of Nebraska; and Ohio State University.
