Primary Care Resident Law and Legal Definition

Primary care resident means a resident enrolled in an approved and certified graduate medical training program or other postgraduate medical training program on family medicine, general internal medicine, general pediatrics, preventive medicine, geriatric medicine, or osteopathic general practice. Training primary care residents in a community health center would increase the number of physicians practicing in these settings and thereby reduces the workforce crisis for underserved patients. Further appointment of primary care resident would increase the output of well trained primary care physicians.
