NAPCRG is pleased to announce the inaugural year of its Trainee Program which aims to cultivate a nurturing learning environment for all students, residents and fellows in the field of primary care research. The program has several components with the cumulative objective to create more involvement, community and resources for NAPCRG trainee members. 

NAPCRG offers a significantly reduced membership fee for trainees! Become a member.

Travel Stipends
The trainee stipend program has initiated trainee stipends which offers ten $1,000 stipends for attendance at the 2016 annual meeting in Colorado Springs, CO, November 12-16. The stipend can be used for expenses required for meeting attendance including transportation, hotel expenses and meals. The purpose of such a program is to aid and encourage trainees to attend the annual meetings that may not be able to completely afford it otherwise. NAPCRG aims to foster a nurturing learning environment for all trainees, hoping that such stipends can provide a more beneficial means of doing so.

To apply for a stipend, you must be in good standing with your medical institution and a current member of NAPCRG. Apply for a stipend. Signed applications must be received by September 15 (midnight).

Preconference Workshop
A preconference for students and residents will take place at the NAPCRG 2016 annual meeting. Attendees will experience a keynote speaker, mentor speed dating and workshops tailored specifically to their education and research needs. The goal of this preconference is to provide more experiences and education for trainees while facilitating networking among senior and junior researchers. Learn more.

Trainee Awards
The Distinguished Trainee Research Awards are intended to promote and acknowledge outstanding completed primary care research conducted by trainees. In addition to the cash prizes, winners are also eligible to receive a $2,000 reimbursement towards expenses incurred during the annual meeting including airfare, transportation, hotel expenses and meals. Learn more.

Beer and Pretzels
The Beer and Pretzels Reception is held each year at the Annual Meeting. The reception is an opportunity for students, residents, and fellows to network with each other and the leaders of NAPCRG. 

Poster walk
Poster Walks are themed walks that take place during select poster sessions at the NAPCRG Annual Meeting and feature different topics and methodologies. They are ideal for those new to primary care research who want to network with experts in the field, including students, residents, and fellows. 

Resident and Fellows Panels
The Resident and Fellow Panel sessions held at the Annual Meeting are designed to be an interactive and informal means to meet with prospective fellowship directors/program directors and learn practical tips about how to obtain your future career objectives.
