The General Psychiatry Residency at Maine Medical Center is certified by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education for four years of postgraduate training. We are part of an excellent tertiary care hospital with over 200 house officers in 20 residency and fellowship programs, including a child psychiatry residency training solidly integrated into the hospital setting.
The Department of Psychiatry is part of a system of care that is delivered not only at Maine Medical Center but also at Spring Harbor Hospital, a new state-of-the-art 100-bed psychiatric hospital 4.5 miles from MMC.
The Medical Center has an academic affiliation with Tufts University School of Medicine and offers the best aspects of patient care and academic stimulation. Residents are involved in teaching medical students from Tufts and from the nearby University of New England. Residents are also actively involved in department governance and decision-making, participating in department retreats and quality improvement projects, and having formal representation on departmental committees.
We are very interested in furthering the practice of psychiatry within New England-particularly in Maine. We have special options for rural psychiatry rotations while offering community-based training experiences in Portland. We are proud of our program and take great pleasure in the success of our graduating residents.
