Maine Med and Tufts extend medical education partnership

Maine Medical Center and Tufts University are renewing a 10-year medical education partnership for another decade, the hospital and university announced on Wednesday. The new agreement – financial details of which were undisclosed – 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 Med to learn in their second year. The partnership, called Maine Track, is capped at 40 students per graduating class, but the idea is to grow the graduating classes beyond that.  Read more.
