Healthcare in the United States is in the midst of transforming from a system that rewards volume of services provided to a system that pays for quality of care delivered. Through the Health Resources & Services Administration Primary Care Training Grant, the University of Utah, and particularly the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine, functions as a training site for the next generation of primary care researchers and leaders. Through the HRSA Primary Care Training Grant, postdoctoral trainees participate in a rigorous training program in research design, methods, and analytical techniques designed to prepare them for leadership in primary care research. Trainees additionally gain valuable experience as integrated members of experienced research teams and conduct guided primary care research projects (with increasing independence overtime). The core purpose of this project is to support efforts to transform Utah’s primary care delivery system to one focused on population‐centered care by fostering a robust primary care research agenda for Utah. We are proud to sponsor the Utah Primary Care Summit and see great value in this opportunity to connect with Utah’s key primary care stakeholders.
