What Is Patient-Centered Team-Based Primary Care?

Student Health Now Has Patient-Centered Team-Based Primary Care.

This means each student has a trusted care team within Student Health to provide continuous and comprehensive care.

When students enter NC State, they are automatically assigned to a care team in the Primary Care Clinic. NC State has three medical teams composed of physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and certified medical assistants. These providers work as a team enabling each patient to return to the same providers and team for continuity of care. The teams are designated by wolf names and consist of the Arctic Wolf Team, Gray Wolf Team, and Red Wolf Team. For more information regarding the Medical Teams see our Team Page.

Students are assigned a primary care medical team by their birth month.
