Medical Education for Primary Care: Primary care residencies should be established under the assumption that doctors will be given freedom of choice regarding their practice locations. Medical schools should accept responsibility for providing the appropriate environment that will motivate students to select careers in primary care and underserved areas. Members with established practices are encouraged to volunteer time to teaching (Council on Medical Education, p 91, A-94; reaffirmed CME Rep. 4-A-04; reaffirmed CME Rep. 2-A-14).
