This project is intended to define how educational and other factors during medical school influence a student's selection of a career in primary care. This project will be done under the auspices of the American College of Physicians (the national organization for internal medicine), where the project mentor is CEO as well as an HMS faculty member. The student will design and carry out a study to assess how curricular and other factors at medical schools in the United States influence the choice of a primary care career.
Local representatives can answer questions about the Profiles website or help with editing a profile or issues with profile data. For assistance with this profile: HMS/HSDM faculty should contact Human Resources at faculty_serviceshms.harvard.edu.
