Pines Health Services and Cary Medical Center announce the arrival of participants in the Maine Track MD Program, Corinne Carland and Hannah Martin, to the Pines and Cary team for their nine-month Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships (LIC).

In partnership with Maine Medical Center (MMC) in Portland Maine, Tufts University School of Medicine offers a Maine Track for applicants who are interested in a unique, innovative curriculum that includes clinical training experiences in Maine. The Maine Track exposes medical students to the unique aspects of rural practice as well as training in a medical center.

Corinne Carland, Maine Track Program Class of 2020, grew up in Shapleigh, Maine before moving to Boston to attend Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where she majored in both Chemical Engineering and Biology. Specifically interested in how broader health systems impact patient wellness, Corinne went on to pursue her Master of Science in Technology and Policy. Corinne states, “I am excited to be part of this program to have an in-depth exposure to medicine in a rural setting like Maine. As a physician, I am committed to working on structural changes to policies and systems to ensure wellness and access to medical services for all Said Carland. ”

Hannah Martin, Maine Track Program Class of 2020, through her travel has always loved the community and nature of Maine. Graduating from Swarthmore College with a major in Psychobiology, Hannah then went on to two years at a small health journalism firm in San Francisco, learning about new medicines and technologies associated with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. “At every juncture in my life, I consider how I can remain connected to my communities. Some of the major challenges facing rural Maine health – including health education and healthcare access – as well as the nature of rural areas require successful physicians to dive into their communities. Beyond my love of Maine’s nature and history, this idea of returning to the communities and people of Maine is what ultimately made the Maine Track so special,” said Martin.

Lisa Caron, Chief Operating Officer at Pines Health Services noted, “Our teams are thrilled to have Corinne and Hannah on board. It is our wish that they will walk away from this clerkship with valuable information that they can carry with them and implement as they continue the journey in their medical careers.”
