Generalist Scholars Primary Care Week 2022On behalf of the Generalist Scholars Program, you’re invited to Primary Care Week 2022, October 3-7. This is a week of fantastic speakers, rich discussions, yummy (and free) food, and fun community outreach volunteer opportunities to give you an in-depth look at how wonderful and important primary care is! Each day we’ll address a topic related to primary care. Especially important for the M1s, each lecture during the week counts towards your outside SIM requirements for the year, so you may want to consider attending a few!
