The Primary Care Innovation (PCI) program, established in 2016, facilitates a virtual and physical site for innovation and experimentation in primary care. Through support and inspiration, the program helps model and mold the next generation of primary care clinicians, educators and researchers. The program’s mission is to unite all the varied components needed for change in our fractured healthcare system. PCI aims to serve as a laboratory for innovation and change. By investing time, the clinicians, educators and researchers of WCIMA and partners can achieve the program’s main goal: to inspire the next generation of medical students in the field of primary care. PCI will guide Internal Medicine residents to choose primary care by creating high quality practice settings, providing opportunities to participate in meaningful research and inspiring viable future careers in a new model of healthcare. The program also support and mentors junior faculty in their careers today and expand the way they practice medicine tomorrow.
