The Student Leadership Committee

The Student Leadership Committee (SLC) grew out of the student group that was instrumental in advocating for the creation of the Center for Primary Care. The SLC’s purpose is to empower and train HMS students to become leaders in primary care practice, education, research, advocacy, and community engagement. It pursues these goals through monthly leadership trainings and focused projects related to primary care advocacy, education, innovation, and culture at Harvard Medical School and beyond. Past and current projects include hosting a symposium on mass incarceration, advocating for increased primary care clinical training and exposure in the Harvard Medical School curriculum, developing mentorship opportunities in primary care, and hosting a TED-talk style event featuring local primary care innovators. The growth of the SLC over the past few years from 12 to 25+ students is a testament to the increasing interest and excitement about primary care at Harvard Medical School. In alignment with its goal to promote interprofessional solutions to primary care challenges, the SLC looks forward to welcoming students from schools of dentistry, nursing, public health, and business in the coming year.
