Abstract

The authors describe the strategies developed at the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, as part of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Generalist Physician Initiative, to increase the proportion of graduating medical students entering generalist disciplines. These strategies included modifying the admission process to involve more primary care faculty so that students with identified potential for primary care would make up at least half of each entering class, and partnering with selected colleges and universities in Pennsylvania to increase the number of applicants with the potential for primary care. They describe partnering and outreach programs Primary Care Day, off-campus cluster meetings, and the Primary Care Scholars Program for col lege seniors and present promising information about the results.
