We would like to welcome you to the Combined Internal Medicine-Pediatric Residency Program at Maine Medical Center. The combined residency received approval from the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics in November of 1999, received initial ACGME accreditation in 2007, and re-accreditation in September 2012 for a ten-year cycle. We offer a four-year program combining two outstanding departments. The program provides optimal, comprehensive training to prepare internist-pediatricians for a broad array of career options including primary care, subspecialty fellowships, research, hospitalist medicine, and academic medicine.
The Maine Medical Center setting fosters professional training in an atmosphere in which we treat patients, families, and fellow healthcare workers with respect. We serve a large and diverse patient population, including a large immigrant community due to Portland's refugee resettlement resources. We take pride in the high caliber of teaching that effectively balances resident supervision and independent decision-making in all clinical venues. The size and structure of our program provides ideal resident involvement as well as flexibility in achieving individual resident training goals.
If you are up to the challenge, we at Maine Medical Center will deliver the training opportunity of a lifetime. Consider joining us in a great coastal city rich in beauty and abundant in cultural and recreational opportunities for you and your family.
