About PCEC

The Primary Care Education Consortium was developed approximately fifteen years ago to provide educational programs for primary care clinicians. Recognizing the difficulty in reaching such a broad audience, PCEC created an initial medical education project on colon cancer awareness as a pilot. Based on the success of this project and realization of the need for education specifically targeting primary care , PCEC developed a collaboration with other primary care organizations to function as a full service medical education company.

Members of the consortium include:

  • The Illinois Academy of Family Physicians (IAFP)

  • Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons of Oregon (OPSO)

  • The Journal of Family Practice (JFP)

  • The North Carolina Association of Pharmacists

  • Nurse Practitioner Associates for Continuing Education (NPACE)

  • Primary Care Metabolic Group (PCMG)

  • Primary Care Respiratory Group (PCRG)

Collaborating Associations include:

  • California Academy of Physician Assistants Foundation

  • Clinician Reviews

Clinician Reviews

PCEC continues to develop and execute high quality educational programs focused on primary care clinicians.

The majority of PCEC projects are publications in peer reviewed journals and live CME symposia and workshops. Examples include:

  • Annual Special Hot Topic Issues of the Journal of Family Practice

  • Regional CME meetings at AAFP State Chapter meetings

  • Annual Chief Resident Summit on Diabetes

  • Symposia at National and Regional meetings including AAFP FMX, Metabolic and Endocrine Disease Summit (MEDS), Cardiovascular, Allergy and Respiratory Summit (CARPS)

PCEC has been consistently accredited by the ACCME.
