The Program

The Aledade FIRST (Fostering Independence, Readiness, Sustainability, and Togetherness) program aims to illuminate the independent primary care pathway by exposing new physicians to value-based care (VBC) and highlighting opportunities in Aledade FIRST partner practices and community health centers (CHCs). This program is intended to welcome the curious and equip the committed with a robust set of value-based primary care skills and support.

As such, participants will move through the program in a stepwise fashion, laying the foundation for a successful, well-connected career in value-based primary care. Beginning in October 2023, Aledade will provide up to 12 post-graduate (PGY-2) family medicine  and general internal medicine residents the opportunity to enter the program and receive VBC training, support, and job placement. Applications are being accepted now.
