PCILI is open to pre-health students and students enrolled in medical, nursing, pharmacy, physician assistant, dental, public health, and clinical psychology programs. This year’s program will feature lively discussions with primary care practitioners from the different health professions showcasing their real-world experiences in working together in interprofessional teams to deliver effective, coordinated, community-based, patient- centered care.

The PCILI agenda includes Primary Care practice, education, and policy, with a particular emphasis on innovative models for Primary Care Delivery (e.g., Patient- Centered Medical Homes, Turntable Health, and Ideal Medical Care Clinics).
