Maine Track MD

Maine Track Class of 2026

Community-Based Medicine.

Tufts School of Medicine’s Maine Track program offers a unique opportunity for students interested in exploring diverse healthcare pathways.  Developed in partnership with Maine Medical Center, the Maine Track provides a curriculum centered on community-based healthcare, allowing students to gain experience at clinical sites across Maine serving diverse communities.  The Maine Track program also offers a limited number of scholarships to help offset the cost of medical education.

Maine focused. Patient centered.

Maine Track students are part of the Tufts University School of Medicine, but spend the majority of their time in Maine. Incoming students complete orientation at sites across the state, and engage in an immersive community-based curriculum. During their third year, many students complete a nine-month Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship (LIC) – an innovative learning model that allows third-year students to follow a panel of patients as they move through the healthcare system, rather than interacting with them just once. This continuous involvement provides Maine Track students with the opportunity to explore a wide range of specialties within Maine's diverse communities.

Making your education a reality.

Maine Track graduates receive a combined diploma from the Tufts School of Medicine and Maine Medical Center, and many go on to establish a practice in the state, though there is no obligation to do so. Many Maine Track students receive scholarships that make the cost of attending Tufts comparable to “in-state” tuition, which means they have the flexibility to pursue careers in a wide range of communities. And our Early Assurance Program gives high-achieving undergraduates who attend specific colleges and universities in Maine the opportunity to apply to Tufts during their sophomore year.
