Get Involved - Become a Medical Student Preceptor!
Ever wanted to be involved in medical student teaching but didn’t know the options or think you had the time? Consider one of these options with Tufts Maine Track or UNE medical students:
TUSM-MMC (Maine Track):
- Orientation Rural Experience for TUSM-MMC students in their very first week of medical school. This is a purely shadowing experience for brand new medical students and involves a commitment of just three days. Occurs in August every year. Contact: Carl Germann MD: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Competency-based Apprenticeship in Primary Care (CAP) involves working with first year into second year MMC-TUSM students for just 20 days throughout the year. A wonderful opportunity to help them build clinical skills and relationships! Contact: Vicki Hayes MD, email@example.com
- Block Preceptor for MMC-TUSM students during their third year clerkship in Family Medicine. This is a six-week rotation designed to introduce students to the joys and rewards of being a family physician by immersing them in your practice. Contact: Peg Cyr MD, firstname.lastname@example.org
- Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship (LIC) is a third year clerkship model in which the students complete the six core clerkships at the same time as opposed to the traditional block model. It is based at nine hospitals spread across the state of Maine. For more information, contact Robert Trowbridge MD, email@example.com.
- 4th Year Elective involves hosting a student for a more in-depth 4-week block in a specialty area (like rural medicine). These students are more advanced in their skill sets and can work more independently.

Community Health Rotation Preceptors Needed! The community health rotation for third year medical students is a 4-week primary care focused rotation within a rural community-based clinical setting. The Maine Area Health Education Center (AHEC) Network at the University of New England Westbrook College of Health Professions’ School of Community and Population Health coordinates the community health rotations in Maine for medical students.
Our AHEC preceptors are Maine’s most precious training resource sharing their knowledge, time, personal experience and lives with Maine’s future health care providers.
