Description

The GE-NMF Primary Care Leadership Program (PCLP) is a six-week summer program that includes clinical experience, leadership training, and a service-learning project that focuses on barriers in healthcare. PCLP provides students with an opportunity to examine the challenges and rewards of primary care practice at community health centers (CHCs) across the United States. Medical students and graduate nursing and physician assistant students from underrepresented minorities or socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds are invited to apply. 2018 PCLP Site Partners are located in the Massachusetts cities of Boston, Chelsea, Lowell, Lynn, and Salem, and the California cities of Los Angeles and Oakland. PCLP Scholars will each receive a $5,000 scholarship stipend that is expected to cover travel, living, and lodging expenses during the externship period. PCLP Scholars complete their program requirements during a six week period between the months of June and July. Students are required to find their own housing and to arrange their transportation to the placement city and throughout the externship period. Scholars become part of the National Medical Fellowships alumni network: over 17,400 healthcare professionals and advocates around the U.S.
