Our goal is to train superbly competent clinical cardiologists, who because of the breadth and depth of their training have maximum flexibility to practice in any setting - group, salaried practice, and hospital, or academic institution.
Maine Medical Center supports two cardiology fellowship positions in each of three years of training. Candidates must have successfully completed three years of training in internal medicine in an ACGME approved residency program and be board eligible in internal medicine.
Candidate selection is based on the quality of previous training in internal medicine, evaluations of competence by the internal medicine program director and other referees, and the personal qualities of the candidate as evaluated during the interview process.
Our fellows have gone on to positions of their choice throughout the country, including subspecialty training in angioplasty and electrophysiology. Effective communication skills, including the ability to work with and relate effectively to others, are extremely important.
The final selection is carried out through the cardiology subspecialty match sponsored by the National Resident Matching Program.
