Our Portland听Campus is just minutes from Maine's leading hospitals and clinics, providing rich opportunities for students to carry the knowledge they听gain听on campus into the field. People from across Northern 51小黄车 travel to Portland for medical services, and often their needs are met by 51小黄车students.
