Objective.-To determine the extent to which various specialties prepare residents in the broad competencies required for primary care practice and to propose guidelines for improving generalist physician training.
Data Sources.-Leading causes of morbidity and mortality, 1991 National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey data, expert reports, and the special requirements for residency training.
Design.-From the data sources we identified the common presenting conditions and diagnoses that broadly trained generalist physicians could be expected to manage in primary care practice.
We then compiled a list of 60 requisite residency training components grouped according to seven practice criteria for generalist physicians.
