The primary care peer network (PCPN) is open to all CPCA member providers. The purpose of the peer network is to share information related to clinical best practices, strategies, protocols and the latest clinical operations. This is ultimately an opportunity to facilitate peer-to-peer learning and networking across all primary care services in the Community Health Center space across California.

The group looks to meet bi-annually (virtually and at the region IX Clinical Excellence Conference). In between these meetings the network stays engaged through discussions via slack community as well as submitting and answering questions through the use of google forms. We encourage members to bring a peer (MD, DO, NP, PA, Midwives) to both of these opportunities to help create a well-rounded network.


Provide a network for clinical providers to help improve their patient outcomes and processes of care by implementing a range of innovations and undertaking quality improvement initiatives based on local community health needs.

  • A peer to peer learning environment where primary care providers can raise questions with their peers and discuss current clinical practices and strategies.
  • Help improve patient care and make system-wide changes.
  • Share individual approaches and quality improvement strategies.
