URMC Teaches There's something very special that helps keep the Center for Primary Care at the leading edge of medicine: We help educate the doctors and nurses of tomorrow. Our network is committed to providing an unmatched learning experience for new doctors and nurses. In fact, the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry ranked 15th for the best primary care medical school in U.S. News & World Report's 2009 listing of top graduate schools in the country. But this commitment also helps our own medical professionals, our primary care physician, nurse, or nurse practitioner/physician's assistant stay on the very cutting edge of medical care. So from time to time, you may be asked if a medical or nursing student can sit in on your visit with us. And of course, you will always have the option of saying, "No, thanks". But if you choose to have that person be part of your visit, you'll be doing much more than helping ensure you get exceptional care. You will be helping a future generation of doctors and nurses to be their very best.
