Leadership for Urban Primary Care Education and Transformation (LUCENT) is a program at the University of Chicago sponsored by Health Resources and Services Administration. The goal of this program is to prepare physicians to be leaders in primary care within urban settings.

The LUCENT program consists of three distinct opportunities.
