ACP's Council of Student Members Supports National Primary Care Week
National Primary Care Week (NPCW) is an annual event to highlight the importance of primary care and bring health care professionals together to discuss and learn about generalist and interdisciplinary health care, particularly its impact on and importance to underserved populations. NPCW aims to focus the attention of health professional students from all disciplines on the failure of the healthcare system to provide equal, high quality health care to all individuals, regardless of ethnicity, race and other factors, and to provide students with the tools to address these inequalities.
The American Medical Student Association (AMSA) and NPCW student leaders at schools from a variety of health disciplines will be working in conjunction with local Area Health Education Centers (AHECs), National Health Service Corps, NHSC Ambassadors, health organizations and professionals to observe National Primary Care Week. No two schools will participate in the same way. While this is a national initiative, each school is encouraged to tailor the week as much as possible to reflect local need and interest.
