Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center offers a “best of both worlds” place to teach and learn Family Medicine: a tertiary care, big-city size and quality hospital with an unopposed, rural medicine training focus, and leadership rooted in Family Medicine and heavily invested in the success of the program.
The EMMC Family Medicine Residency Program is a 30 resident ACGME accredited program with Osteopathic Recognition. Our training emphasis prepares our graduates to practice in rural settings. We are an unopposed residency based at Eastern Maine Medical Center, a 411-bed community owned, community governed non-profit hospital that serves as the referral center for northern and eastern Maine. Outpatient experience is based at our new state-of-the-art facility, EMMC Center for Family Medicine and Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center.
As a resident, you start your first day of residency as a family physician for the community of Bangor and surrounding areas of Maine. Your work as a family physician is supported and supervised by experienced full-time faculty, part-time clinical faculty, visiting preceptors, an extensive network of affiliated specialists, and a collaborative team of support staff including Family Nurse Practitioners, Certified Nurse Midwives, a Practice Manager, Registered Nurses, Medical Assistants, RN Care Managers, an integrated behavioral health team with a Psychiatrist, PhD Psychologist and Licensed Clinical Social Workers . The team at the Center for Family Medicine strives to develop you into a well-rounded family physician to whom they would entrust the care of their own family members.
After the completion of your Family Medicine Residency at EMMC you will be prepared to care for patients from birth to death with an emphasis on knowing and treating the whole patient. You will be proficient in inpatient and outpatient medicine, a comprehensive range of procedures, obstetrics, pediatrics, acute and emergency care, gynecology, preventative medicine, geriatrics, osteopathic medicine and more.
All Family Medicine residencies nationally have set standards for a base curriculum, but there are many reasons your training at EMMC will be unique.
