The CMMC Family Medicine Residency welcomed eight third year medical students from the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine (UNECOM). The residency program serves as the coordinator for the CMMC “Clinical Campus” for UNECOM.
The students will spend their entire third year of medical school within the Central Maine Healthcare system to complete their core clinical rotations in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine (inpatient and outpatient), Obstetrics/Gynecology, Pediatrics, and Surgery. The students will also have the opportunity for one Psychiatry rotation at St. Mary’s Health System and one community health/rural medicine rotation.
One of the most unique aspects of the program involves introducing the students to Maine’s rural and community health needs through a clinical rotation often completed at Swift River Family Medicine in Rumford. As the need for healthcare providers in the state continues to increase, it’s important for future providers to experience the work and see if it’s a good fit for their career.
When the students finish out the year, they will have a great general understanding of all aspects of healthcare and the career options their medical degrees provide for them.
