The CMMC Family Medicine Residency attracts resident physicians who are bright, enthusiastic and who want to make a positive difference in the lives of their patients. All of these physicians are required to complete a three-year post graduate residency in their chosen specialty of Family Medicine in order to become board certified Family Physicians.
Since its inception in 1978, the Family Medicine Residency has been a leader in innovations in healthcare at CMMC. It operates out of the Oscar Treat Turner Family Medicine Center located at 76 High Street, an outpatient health center adjacent to the medical center complex. Family physicians offer care to entire families across the lifespan. The Family Medicine residents pictured here will provide care to a group of patients and families at all stages of life including: pregnancy, delivering babies, baby/child/teenager care, adults, and elder adults including end of life care. In addition, they will spend time caring for patients in the hospital under the supervision of primary care doctors and sub-specialist physicians.
The mission of CMMC’s Family Medicine Residency is to provide a progressive and stimulating environment in which to learn and to develop the skills necessary to be highly competent family physicians. Many of the residency’s graduates continue to practice in the Lewiston-Auburn area or in Maine after graduation.
