Practice Coaching for Primary Care Transformation (PCPCT) Training

Practice Coaching for Primary Care Transformation (PCPCT) Training is a multi-faceted training program designed for leaders at all levels who have a formal or informal coaching role in primary care transformation efforts. The course is an orientation to, and comprehensive review of, the science of change in primary care practice and equips participants with practical tools and coaching skills necessary to engage and support teams as they evolve into high performing Patient-Centered Medical Homes. Focused on the 10 Building Blocks of High Performing Primary Care (Bodenheimer & Ghorob 2013), the course explores national best practices implemented in high-performing clinics in areas such as team-based care, prompt access to care and population-based care.

This workshop is designed for practice coaches who work with primary care practices to assist with transformation efforts towards high performing Patient Centered Medical Homes.


"PCPCT showed me how to look at problems clinics face in a different light and gave me practical solutions to use. I loved how [the trainer] was always so meta about teaching us by saying 'oh did you see how I taught you that? That's what you can do with clinics.' It was a perfect rich, multi-layered training."
- Joan Nelson, Practice Coach

10 Building Blocks of Primary Care Transformation


In addition to four full days of classroom training, the program also includes a pre-training assessment, curriculum materials that coaches can use with practices, three months of optional post-training mentoring support and a site visit to at least one local high performing primary care practice.  This robust training approach educates participants on the fundamental content of practice coaching while also providing them with the resources needed to empower clinic teams in utlizing quality improvement methods for sustainable change. It is effective for all coaches, regardless of their experience.  Since 2013 the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Center for Excellence in Primary Care and the Patient & Population Centered Primary Care program of CareOregon have been teaching this course material in an effort to bring clarity to the world of transformation work.

Space in this training program is very limited, and sessions fill up quickly.
