Background and Objectives: The Patient-centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a central concept in the evolving debate about American health care reform. We studied family medicine residency training programs' continuity clinics to assess baseline status of implementing PCMH components and to compare implementation status between community-based and university training programs. Methods: We conducted a survey 24 continuity clinics in 14 residency programs that are part of the Preparing the Personal Physicians for Practice (P 4) program. We asked questions about aspects of P 4 that had been already implemented at the beginning of the P 4 program. We defined high implementation as aspects that were present in >50% of clinics and low implementation as those present in 4.
