University of Colorado School of Medicine: Lecture — Direct Primary Care

November 20, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


NOTE: This event takes place in the Mountain Time zone.

All are invited to BRI-University of Colorado School of Medicine’s first event for the academic year 2015-2016. Please share this opportunity to hear about Direct Primary Care (DPC) with fellow students and faculty. RSVPs are appreciated. Lunch will be provided.

Dr. Lisa Davidson of Insight Primary Care will be speaking about the overarching concepts and practice of Direct Primary Care (DPC) in healthcare, and her personal experiences with it. BRI DPC Lisa Davidson MDThe mission statement from Dr. Davidson’s website sums up many aspects of direct primary care: “Insight is defined as the capacity for accurate and deep understanding of a person or thing. Our mission is to create a medical home for individuals and families that is easily accessible, cost-conscious, encourages collaboration, and promotes wellness. We welcome everyone to our practice regardless of race, religion, culture or sexual identity.”

In 2014, UCDenver, Anschutz Medical Campus was chosen as the location for Benjamin Rush Institute’s annual Student Leadership Conference. It was an exceptional event, attended by 29 students from around the country, and featured a 2-on-2 debate on the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB).

In keeping with our strong chapter history and reputation, UCDenver’s BRI Chapter will be looking for energetic and interested students for volunteer officer positions for the academic year 2015-2016, and the chance to attend next spring’s Student Leadership Conference (location & dates TBA).

Paid parking is available on the Anschutz Medical Campus; please see this link for more information.

POST-EVENT SUMMARY:  Fifteen students attended our 1-hour lunch lecture with Dr. Davidson. She spoke for about 40 minutes about direct primary care in general, and her experiences specifically with the DPC model. She also provided a great list of resources for students interested in more information. Unexpectedly to me, she brought a colleague of hers who has worked at another DPC company to give his perspective as well after her talk. We had about 15 minutes for questions at the end of the talk.
