Central to fulfilling the Center for Excellence in Primary Care's mission is a focus on the primary care pipeline and optimizing undergraduate and graduate medical education as they relate to primary care specialties, thereby bolstering and sustaining interest and satisfaction in primary care. As we have applied the Building Blocks, we have identified the need to differentiate how they relate to or are modified for primary care teaching practices, which train the future generation of primary care clinicians. Our goal is to identify best practices among high-performing primary care teaching practices in order to develop a model for transformation that can serve as a practical blueprint for other teaching practices to provide the optimal experience for students, residents, staff, and patients alike.
