Primary Care Provider (PCP) and Your Primary Care Team
Your primary care provider (PCP) is the medical professional who knows you best and coordinates all of your care. We believe that a close relationship with your PCP plays an essential role in providing efficient and personalized care. Your PCP is part of a clinical team that consists of:
- nurse practitioners
- physician associates
- medical assistants
- clinical receptionists
Together this team collaborates to provide the care you need, answer your questions between visits, and coordinate specialty care.
We encourage you to see your PCP for most of your scheduled and unscheduled care. When this is not possible, you will have access to other clinicians on your primary care team. Team members communicate important information through our shared electronic health record.
A PCP is assigned to you upon enrollment in Yale Health. Female members are assigned a PCP in the Ob/Gyn Department as well as the Internal Medicine Department. Children are assigned a PCP in the Pediatrics Department.
