Generalist Physician Initiative

The Foundation's Generalist Physician Initiative was designed to challenge schools of medicine--in collaboration with state governments, private insurers, HMOs, hospitals, and community health centers--to increase the supply of generalist physicians.This is one of 18 projects funded for a development phase (18 months) under the Generalist Physician Initiative. During this period they will develop a comprehensive strategy for increasing the supply of generalist physicians including medical school admissions, undergraduate medical education, residency training and practice entry and support. The Medical College of Georgia will be collaborating with the State Medical Education Board and will be developing relationships with high schools and college premedical advisors to increase generalist careers. The major product of this phase will be the presentation of a work plan that demonstrates their ability to implement the program.
