The Wright Center for Graduate Medical Education
The Wright Center for Community Health and its affiliated entity, The Wright Center for Graduate Medical Education, is a non-profit, community-based graduate medical education consortium and safety-net provider of primary care services. Our mission is to improve the health and welfare of our community through inclusive and responsive health services and the sustainable renewal of an inspired, competent workforce that is privileged to serve. Our organization was founded in 1976 as an Internal Medicine residency and has blossomed into a robust, nationally-recognized Graduate Medical Education Safety-Net Consortium (GME-SNC), serving 19,500+ patients annually and training 185+ learners within community venues across America. We aim to develop culturally competent doctors and integrate mental health, dental services and other specialty services into primary care for a whole-patient approach to care. At the heart of all we do is a strong commitment to graduate medical education, patient and family care and positive regional impact, inclusive of community service and economic growth and development.
