Primary Care Progress (PCP) is a non-profit organization working to revitalize the primary care system and build a new interprofessional generation of leaders in primary care. PCP is harnessing a student-led grassroots mobilization strategy, teaching students and other trainees skills in leadership, innovation, and advocacy so they can launch local campaigns to promote primary care, advance innovations in care delivery, and accelerate educational reform. PCP is made up of a network of 51 chapters and thousands of members across the country representing all primary care professions, including medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and social work.
