Third Class of Maine Track Medical Students Celebrated, Tufts Reports

Tufts University reported the university’s School of Medicine and Maine Medical Center recently celebrated the third group of students in the Maine Track MD program during Match Day, when medical students across the country learn where they will begin their residency training following graduation this spring. A partnership between Tufts University School of Medicine and Maine Medical Center, the Maine Track MD program trains medical students interested in practicing medicine in underserved urban and rural communities in Maine. The program annually reserves a limited number of seats for sophomores from University of Maine System institutions, Bowdoin, Bates and Colby. The program was established in 2008 — students were first admitted in 2009 — with the hope that a significant number of graduates would go on to practice medicine in Maine.
