Central Maine Medical Center Family Medicine Residency (CMMC FMR) is a 7-7-7 ACGME certified program with an osteopathic recognition track and rural training. Founded in 1978, CMMC FMR has graduated over 160 family physicians. Our program prepares physicians to practice family medicine in communities with populations ranging from 500 to 500,000.
The residency is based at the Oscar Treat Turner Family Medicine Center, an outpatient health center on CMMC’s main campus in Lewiston, Maine. We also have additional continuity clinics in Rumford at the Swift River Family Medicine office and provide first contact care to undergraduate students at Bates College in Lewiston. We are the only residency in our sponsoring hospital, allowing our residents to easily gain experience in all aspects of inpatient and outpatient care. Our curriculum provides opportunities for further training in many areas of family medicine including integrative medicine, geriatrics, sports medicine, neuromusculoskeletal medicine, public health and others as directed by each resident’s specific learning goals. We expose residents to Lewiston and surrounding rural communities early in their training to inspire them for where their education can lead. CMMC also offers a fellowship in hospital medicine and provides clinical and educational training opportunities to third and fourth-year medical students.
