Often described as the 'hidden gem' of residency programs, MMC's Anesthesiology Residency offers what few others can...excellent training with a collegial staff in a world class hospital all set against the backdrop of one of the most beautiful places in the country to live.
Our program is made up of a highly interactive group of attendings and residents who work hard and are exceptional at what they do. Each year, five new residents are accepted into the program that supports a total of twenty from intern to CA-3 years. This small number makes a tremendous impact on the volume of cases each resident takes the lead on, allowing them to hone their skills and build confidence early in their training.
Maine Medical Center is a referral base of over one million people and is a regional leader for open-heart surgery, kidney transplantation, pediatric surgery, obstetrics, neurosurgery, and is a Level I Trauma Center. With over 50,000 surgeries performed each year at the main hospital and its satellite campuses, our residents are always involved in the most exciting, technical and educational cases. They also benefit from the teaching of attendings trained at the most renowned hospitals in the country, access to a new, state of the art simulation center and employment at a medical center that makes resident satisfaction a priority.
And when the work is done, our residents enjoy the playground that is Maine. Referred to as ‘Vacationland,’ activities are endless in this beautiful four-season state famous for its outdoor escapes, glorious weather, genuine people and fabulous food.
So we invite you to spend some time on the site meeting our residents and staff, reviewing our curriculum and exploring life in Portland to see why we consider ourselves lucky to be a part of this outstanding program and why you might also find it a perfect fit.
