Read The Paper

Welcome to The Arc


Welcome! The Arc is an independent group of 8 colleagues concerned about the future of personal doctoring and the health of communities.

Our goal is to help guide the creation of family medicine residency programs that are collaborative, integrative, and community-focused in order to produce the personal doctors that people want and need.  

This website is a place for ideas about rethinking primary care education and clinical care. It is also a repository for innovative examples and readings and resources that can inform and motivate.

We welcome your input into this community of ideas and innovation at a time when family medicine and primary care education need both.

Our Vision:

Family medicine residencies should be community institutions that promote cooperation, strengthen human connection, and produce expert generalist physicians who build trusting relationships with patients.
