Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC)


This resource, part of AAMC's Readiness for Reform initiative, describes how Duke University has built a primary care system that is increasingly coordinated and integrated throughout both the health system and the community it serves. Duke employs five factors to achieve its success: (1) building trust with the community; (2) diversifying the primary care portfolio; (3) integrating research; (4) investing in primary care education; and (5) leveraging information technology. These factors, as detailed in this resource, can be replicated in other academic medical centers (AMCs) across the nation as they navigate changes in the wake of health care reform.
