Center for the Advancement of Primary Care

Center for the Advancement of Primary Care (CAPC), which is jointly supported by UMass Memorial Health Care and the UMass Medical School, is dedicated to enhancing the work life of our primary care providers.

CAPC represents an important collaboration across the departments of family medicine, general internal medicine and general pediatrics. CAPC is committed to working with others across the clinical system and the Medical School in a more coordinated fashion to strengthen and enhance the valuable primary care network that already exists throughout the UMass Memorial system. 

The CAPC also provides information via the following newsletters and reports.

  • Primary Care News for physicians
  • Stick to It for diabetes information
  • Pressure Points for hypertension information
  • Annual Report 2012

Working hard to advocate for and improve primary care are our staff and executive committee, as well as an advisory committee with members from the broader UMass Memorial community representing UMass Memorial Medical Center, member hospitals, Community Medical Group, School of Nursing, private physicians, community health centers and other academic specialty areas.

Our Executive Committee includes:
