The Competency-based Apprenticeship in Primary Care (CAP) Course serves as the initial exposure to the clinical setting for second year medical students in the Tufts University School of Medicine-Maine Medical Center (MaineTrack) program. CAP aims to provide an early exposure to primary care and support the development of mentoring relationships between the faculty members and their students.

During CAP, MaineTrack students will travel within the state to work with assigned Maine primary care faculty members at their practices. Students are responsible for meeting a list of competencies with preceptor supervision and completing several course assignments.
