This paper describeS how the Academic Units for Primary Care Training and Enhancement (AU-PCTE), funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), used the Collective Impact Model to promote health equity. The Collective Impact Model and its five conditions provided a framework for the Academic Units for Primary Care Training and Enhancement (AU-PCTE), representing multiple universities in the United States, to promote health equity. Through the establishment of shared measurement, continuous communication, mutually reinforcing activities, and the guidance of the backbone support organization, the work of each AU contributed to the collective impact on health equity. It is important to underscore that collective impact is an iterative process with both challenges and successes.
