Medical Students - Maine Track Program

TUSM MHMMC Maine Track Program

Learn more about if the TUSM MHMMC Maine Track Program is right for you. Hear from current medical students about their experience along with faculty and administration about their passion for the program.

In 1970, MaineHealth Maine Medical Center (MHMMC) became a major clinical teaching center for Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM), a relationship which lasted through July of 1980. Between 1980 and 2011, MHMMC was the principal affiliate of the University of Vermont College of Medicine, with third-year clerks training in all the major MHMMC clinical departments. In 2008, MHMMC and TUSM signed an agreement to collaborate in delivering a unique and innovative medical school curriculum designed to support better access to care and a stronger health care workforce in Maine.

TUSM, in partnership with MHMMC, offers the Maine Track program for applicants who are interested in an innovative curriculum that offers clinical training experiences in the unique aspects of community-based medicine, working with rural and urban communities, as well as training at a major tertiary medical center. Through the generosity of the State of Maine, MaineHealth Maine Medical Center’s Board of Trustees, and other individuals and organizations, twenty $25,000 per year scholarships have been made available for tuition support to help defray the cost of medical education.

Applicants with an interest in all areas of medicine (rural, community-based, etc.) are encouraged to apply. Graduates of this program will receive a combined diploma from TUSM and MHMMC, with the hope that many will return to practice in Maine.
