Team-Based Primary Care Learning Centres


The Team-based Primary Care Learning Centres (TPCLC) project is a three-year project, funded by the Ministry of Health (MoH) and managed by the UBC Department of Family Practice in the Faculty of Medicine (FoM), to introduce team-based alternatives to optimize team-based teaching opportunities province-wide.

Our activities:

  • Helping to build and sustain interprofessional team-based primary care across British Columbia.
  • Purposely training family practice medical residents in interprofessional team-based settings.
  • Providing an enhanced training experience for family practice residents.

Our intentions:

  • To increase both training and clinical capacity within Primary Care Networks (PCNs) and other interprofessional team-based primary care models, province-wide.
  • To test alternative models for integration of family practice medical residents into interprofessional team-based primary care settings.
  • To build the initial scaffolding for a comprehensive provincial plan for integrated, collaborative health education and training.
