Primary Care Residency Wins Innovation Award
Baystate Internal Medicine's Primary Care Residency Program was the winner of the 2014 Primary Care Challenge sponsored by MedTechBoston, American College of Physicians, the American Resident Project and Harvard Medical School Center for Primary Care. The award was for presenting the most innovative idea in primary care. The award was based on crowd-sourced online voting and a culminating pitch-off of the 5 finalists to a panel of 5 judges at Harvard Medical School.
As the winners of the 2014 Primary Care Challenge, the program was awarded the opportunity by the American Resident Project to be featured in a short documentary highlighting our unique program.
A description of the primary care residency program has been featured in the Really Good Stuff section of Medical Education and has been presented nationally at professional meetings such as the Society for General Internal Medicine and the Association of Program Directors in Internal Medicine.
The Primary Care Program was also featured by National Public Radio in a piece highlighting the next generation’s path to primary care careers.
