Spotlight on Primary Care Series & National Primary Care Week
Spotlight on Primary Care Series
Each year, the Office of Primary Care and AHEC program plan special activities in observance of National Primary Care Week. Medical students are invited to learn about various aspects of practicing in the primary care setting. These lunch and learn sessions are offered throughout the academic year at the Larner College of Medicine.
Typical topics include: financial matters, military programs in primary care, primary care in rural Vermont, the business of practicing primary care, multi-disciplinary approaches to treatment, oral health in primary care, treating addiction in the primary care setting, panel discussions with primary care practitioners and fourth year medical students, and more.
National Primary Care Week
National Primary Care Week (NPCW) is an annual event to highlight the importance of primary care and bring health care professionals together to discuss and learn about the impacts climate change can and will have on human health and health care. NPCW's goal is to engage physician's-in-training, students across the health care spectrum, and the general population on the indispensable role of primary care in our health care system.
