APTR will offer continuing field placements (rotations) for Preventive Medicine and Primary Care residents based at the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality(AHRQ).

applications in health policy for Preventive Medicine and Primary

federal health policy in the making and consider the significant role of
physicians in the process. During the
rotation, residents will have the opportunity to work on national preventive
health initiatives as well as attend
meetings and briefings with senior staff/leadership, high-level policy makers
and other prevention-related activities in the Washington, DC area.
