PCPCC and Primary Care Progress
Stories from the Nexus:
Five Part Podcast Series 
Join the Primary Care Collaborative and Primary Care Progress on April 6 at 8 p.m. EST for a webinar on the importance of practice transformation in residency training.

The panelists will discuss how residency program collaboratives are preparing residents for future models of care delivery including patient-centered medical homes and accountable care organizations.

These collaboratives have unique goals and objectives, but are generally sharing best practices, collecting data and outcomes on new training models, coordinating learning sessions, and supporting each other through the development of new curricula for primary care residents.
