The goal of PCLT is to create change agents for the health care system through primary care.  The 4-year program offers leadership training, a longitudinal-integrated clerkship in second year which include following pregnant mothers and delivering their babies, time for service with a community health care agency, and research in community-engaged population health. 

Those who match in primary care residency are eligible for need-based loan repayment up to $40,000. Our graduates have chosen primary care residencies: family medicine (outpatient adults, children, and prenatal care), general internal medicine (adults only), primary care pediatrics (children only), pediatrics/psychiatry, medicine/psychiatry, and Obstetrics/gynecology
