Primary care occurs in a number of settings; therefore, experiences may be found in community health centers, senior and child daycare centers, family practice settings, schools, college health centers, occupational/industrial health offices, home health agencies, and hospitals. Critical thinking, decision making, and leadership skills are fostered.
