Maine Medical Center and Tufts Continue Collaboration for Medical Education

The new agreement, announced last week, will take the partnership to 2029 and allow for the program to expand.  Currently, students in the program spend the first two years at Tufts School of Medicine in Boston before coming to Maine for the final two years.  Starting in 2019, students will come to Maine Medical Center for their second year of instruction, as well.  The partnership is currently capped at 40 students per graduating class but the idea is to grow the graduating classes beyond that number.

The Portland Press Herald reports that one-half of all Maine Track students have stayed in Maine to practice medicine after completing residencies either in Maine or elsewhere.

MMA members will vote on a bylaw amendment at the Annual Meeting Sept. 8 in Bar Harbor to establish a Medical Student Section within MMA, with a Resident Section to follow the next year. Establishment of these sections will allow both students and residents to participate fully in the activities both of MMA and the AMA student and resident sections. The student section is already formed and operating informally. The current chairs are Corinne Carland, TUSM '20 and Archana Anandakrishnan, UNECOM '21. MMA hopes to welcome at least four students at the Annual Meeting in September.

Questions about the student section can be addressed to Susan Kring at MMA (skring@mainemed.com).
