Family Medicine Residency

How to Apply

Maine Medical Center participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and all PGY-1 residents in the institution are selected by this process. We accept applications only through the use of Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We ask each applicant to make every effort to get all materials to us by mid-October.
Within two weeks of receiving your completed application, we will notify you via ERAS about whether or not we are able to offer you a personal interview. If an interview is offered, the notification will request that you call the department to arrange the interview. Interviews are offered from November through January on Thursdays, Fridays and some Wednesdays.

The interview days are designed to be satisfying opportunities to discuss the program with the residents and faculty and to tour the hospital and clinics. The residents host multiple interview dinners each week to welcome our interviewees in a fun and enjoyable environment.
