The internship fulfills another part of its mission by having interns participate in rotations with an integrated primary care emphasis at the on-campus PCOM Family Medical Practice and/or at community health care centers in three urban sites: the PCOM Roxborough Health Care Center, the Lancaster Avenue Health Care Center in West Philadelphia, and the Cambria Health Care Center in North Philadelphia.

In addition, the internship continues to extend supervised clinical training experiences in the arena of integrated behavioral health.
