The BWH Residency Program in Primary Care and Population Medicine offers distinctive training to develop superb generalist physicians who can provide outstanding clinical care, as well as leadership in health systems and policy, and in the improvement of the health of populations.

Primary care faces major challenges.

Acquiring an understanding of health systems and health policy, the evidence base of practice, clinical preventive services, and the role of public health systems will help tomorrow's physicians improve care at multiple levels and address pressing issues in quality, access, cost and disparities in health care.
