Primary Care Track Projects

Many Primary Care Track residents will apply to have a half-day per week through the REACH program during their second and third years to work on a research project that will help to enhance their career development. Residents can also choose to use some of their elective time during their longitudinal elective experience to devote to the development and execution of their research project.
