Leadership Reflect on Strengths of Primary Care Program and Identify Areas for Growth during Visioning Day
A Primary Care Visioning day held at the Boston University Charles River Campus on April 13th, provided space and opportunity for program leadership to ‘dream big’, reflect, and reimagine, with the ultimate goal of making our Primary Care Program the best it can be.
The day saw faculty with wide-ranging perspectives and career trajectories reflect on the achievements and potential of the Primary Care Program. Throughout the day, attendees were encouraged to share the experiences they valued in their own training, as well as identify those they did not have and would have found useful, and consider how these findings might shape the current BU/BMC Primary Care Program.
Attendees included new Chair of Medicine Dr. Anthony Hollenburg, Program Director Gopal Yadavalli, and Section Chief of General Internal Medicine, Dr. Mike Fischer. The day provided a unique opportunity for program leadership to respond collaboratively to shifts in the national landscape of Primary Care practice and training, with a view to implementing change.
The many successes of our Primary Care Program to date were also acknowledged and celebrated, including a robust and far-reaching advocacy curriculum; alumni in notable leadership positions; and the fostering of a strong Primary Care community and identity within the wider framework of Categorical residency.
Contributing to the overall sense of excitement and optimism, we are thrilled to welcome an exceptional cohort of Primary Care interns in July, following a highly successful Primary Care match. We are incredibly excited for the future of our Primary Care program!
