Generalist Programs

The Office of Generalist Programs (OGP) encourages and supports the education of primary care physicians (in family medicine, internal medicine, medicine/pediatrics, medicine/psychiatry, pediatrics and to a limited extent, obstetrics/gynecology) to provide health services to underserved populations in North Carolina, particularly those who reside in eastern North Carolina. Major components of the OGP focus on:
  • The encouragement of premedical, under-graduate student interest in primary care medical careers
  • Support and encouragement of medical students toward careers in primary care through involvement with student interest groups in family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics and rural health
  • Encouragement of primary care careers through involvement with the American Medical Association Medical Student Section, American Medical Student Association and the Student National Medical Association chapters at the medical school
  • Assisting the school, primary care department chairs and residency program directors in making careers in primary care attractive to their residents
