General Surgery Residency

General Surgery Residency at Maine Medical Center

Welcome to the General Surgery Residency Program 

Our Department provides a comprehensive learning experience to prepare our residents for practice in general surgery or further subspecialty training. 

In addition to our commitment to a superior learning experience, Portland provides an enjoyable lifestyle for both the residents and their families. It represents all of the things we have come to enjoy in New England: a smaller community, the changing seasons, and the nearby ocean and mountains.

We provide a scholarly environment that integrates the science of medicine with clinical practice. Our size allows us to know our residents on a personal basis and encourages our faculty to accommodate individual needs and learning styles. We prepare individuals to understand the ethical responsibilities of patient care and foster the process that allows them to be teachers and independent thinkers throughout their careers.

Our Mission Statement

"Provide excellent patient care while preparing a highly competent surgeon. Our graduates are equipped to enter general surgical practice directly or pursue subspecialty training with equal success, while advancing surgical care through quality improvement and clinical investigation."
