Are you an internist that wants to develop your leadership skills with a successful and nationally recognized innovative primary care practice? Do you have the confidence and ambition to lead a group of impressive primary care physicians?

Brigham and Women’s Advanced Primary Care Associates on South Huntington in Jamaica Plain is a primary care practice for adults 18 and older. A NCQA level 3 certified medical home, South Huntington is winner of the 2014 Society of General Internal Medicine Quality and Practice Innovation Award and was one of the practices profiled in the ABIM Foundation’s “In Search of Joy in Practice: A Report of 23 High- Functioning Primary Care Practices”. Our multi-disciplinary team-based approach is setting the standard for primary care in Boston.

The practice is divided into 3 clinical teams, each team including several physicians (many part time with either leadership, research or entrepreneurial interests in primary care transformation), a physician assistant, two medical assistants, 1 LPN, an RN and a social worker. Additional shared resources include a dietician, pharmacist, a community resource specialist/behavioral health population manager, a community health worker, a practice coordinator, practice manager, 2 phlebotomists, and a security officer. We strongly believe it takes a team as robust as this to meet all the needs of the diverse population we are privileged to serve. Our patients are viewed as a critical member of the team, with an active Patient Family Advisory Council.
