This week, hosts Mark Masselli and Margaret Flinter speak with Dr. Angela Rasmussen, who leads the core virology team at the Viral Emergence Research Initiative at the Georgetown University Center for Global Health, Science and Security. A renowned expert on deadly emergent pathogens, she helps us unlock some of the mysteries around Sars-CoV-2, the COVID-19 virus. She describes the development of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine as a “scientific achievement of our lifetimes”, but also examines the growing number of variants of the virus, which may undermine long term effectiveness of the vaccine, highlighting the need to speed up global vaccination to protect the population from greater pandemic threats.

These are the cornerstone of the residency. In precepted clinics, the APC residents each develop their own patient panel while having an expert Open Door primary care provider (MD, APRN or PA) exclusively assigned to them.
2 Sessions / Week x 1 / Month
The APC residents complete rotations in areas of high-volume/high-burden/high-risk situations most commonly encountered in the setting of the FQHC. Sample rotations include: orthopedics, dermatology, women’s health, pediatrics, geriatrics, newborn/nursery, HIV care, adult behavioral health, child and adolescent behavioral health, and healthcare for the homeless.
Mentored independent clinics
2 Sessions / Week
During independent clinics, the APC residents work as members of a team and see patients at the delegation of other primary care providers, who remain available for consultations. The focus is on the practice of episodic and acute care visits.
1 Session / Week
The NP/PA residents attend formal learning sessions on a variety of complex clinical challenges most commonly encountered in FQHCs. The content of the presentations is planned to correspond to the residents’ current clinical experiences.
