The application cycle for the 2013 GE-NMF Primary Care Leadership Program is now closed.
GE-NMF PCLP provides medical, nursing and physician assistant students a valuable opportunity to examine firsthand primary healthcare in key areas of the US. This program enhances traditional instruction of future physicians and health professionals by exposing students to the rewards and challenges of working in medically underserved communities. The overall mission of PCLP is to increase capacity in primary care services across the US by growing a pipeline of healthcare professionals.
The innovative PCLP scholarship provides a summer service-learning opportunity of 200 hours (6-8 weeks) at community health centers (CHCs) in Phoenix AZ, Los Angeles CA, Jackson MS, Nashville TN, Mobile AL, W. Memphis AR, Orlando FL, and San Antonio TX.
Scholars actively engage in healthcare services, leadership training and conduct a site-specific independent project. Scholars are plugged into a broad network of individuals representing national, regional and local medical associations, primary care-related organizations, academic institutions, NMF alumni, and program advisors.
