What do our Residents do After Residency?
The short answer: anything they want to. One if the core missions of this program is to train exceptional specialists in Obstetrics and Gynecology who then have the ability to choose any career path they would like to pursue after residency training. We have been very successful in achieving this goal.
We have had many residents pursue fellowships. We have had residents pursue MFM fellowships at Brigham and Women's Hospital, University of Iowa and Tufts University Medical Center. Residents have completed Reproductive Endocrinology fellowships at University of Pittsburgh and Duke University Medical Center. For two years in a row, we have placed residents in Gyncologic Oncology fellowships at New York University and University of California at Sacramento. Two of our residents completed a Urogynecology fellowship at Johns Hopkins University and University of Rochester. We have had residents choose to do a Pelvic Reconstruction fellowships at Dartmouth University as well as Laparoscopic Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery at Northside Hospital in Atlanta, GA. One of our former residents recently completed a Family Planning Clinical Care Fellowship at Emory. Another spent ten years post residency at the Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia. Four of our current residents are applying or planning to apply to fellowships after their residency (MFM, Gyn Oncology, Reproductive Endocrinology, UroGyn)
Many of our graduating residents choose to practice medicine in the beautiful state of Maine, providing exceptional medical care in rural communities and in the Portland area. Former residents practice in many states across the country, from Florida to Colorado to Washington State to Alaska. Many of our former residents are actively choosing to teach residents and medical students
