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. In addition to the fellowships in the last six years, 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, Beth Israel in Boston and Duke University Medical Center. For four years out of five, we have placed residents in Gynecologic Oncology fellowships at New York University, University of California at Sacramento, Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York City and Magee Women’s Hospital in Pittsburgh . Our residents have completed Urogynecology fellowships at Johns Hopkins University, University of Rochester and currently at Massachusetts General Hospital. We have had residents choose to do 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. 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 pursue academic medicine, teaching residents and medical students.
