We are so excited you found us.

One mission of the Direct Primary Care Alliance is education. While there are many resources about independent medicine and how to start your own DPC clinic available, it was the hope of the leadership (and membership) of the DPCA at its inception that, over time, the DPCA would evolve to be the resource for all things DPC.

The DPC University was launched in 2019 as one facet of the educational mission of the DPC Alliance. There is, and will continue to be, much more to come. However, this is the beginning.

The following documents are the result of the work of many physicians, all DPCA members who generously gave their mind-share, experience, and time to create the “U”.

In late 2019, ten of us met for a weekend outside of Dallas to write, write, write. While no formal credit is provided with the individual articles, the physicians below were the writers, editors and publishers of the DPCU. As with all things, we grow together and through collaborative sharing of ‘pearls’ push direct primary care forward.

The DPCA reconvenes a Writers' Workshop to update and expand the DPC University content every year. If you would be interested in joining us please contact our Executive Director, Joe Grundy.
