Maine-Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency
At Maine-Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency you will find a close-knit community of health care providers committed to excellent culturally-competent patient care and passionate about teaching. Maine-Dartmouth is dedicated to ongoing efforts to cultivate a work environment that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive, and that supports well-being for our employees, colleagues, and learners, as well as our patients. We are seeking individuals to join us in furthering this important work.
MDFMR operates 6 clinical practices in collaboration with MaineGeneral Medical Center:
- Family Medicine Institute (FMI) in Augusta
- MDFMR Dermatology Services in Augusta
- Four Seasons Family Practice (FSFP) in Fairfield
- Maine Dartmouth Family Practice (MDFP) in Waterville
- Maine Dartmouth Collaborative Care Center (MDCCC) in Waterville
- Maine Dartmouth Geriatric Medicine in Augusta
At all practices, we emphasize care for otherwise underserved segments of the community, and thus are a major provider of prenatal care for uninsured women as well as a source of care for the large underinsured population, the chronically mentally ill, and individuals struggling with addiction.
Two family medicine practices (FMI and MDFP) serve as the primary teaching sites for resident training, approximating family practice in the “real world.” Both practices serve various socio-economic groups, exposing residents to many types of insurance and managed care. Our patient populations appear to be remarkably stable, and many of the FMI patients have been served by that facility for over 20 years. This provides not only continuity of care for patients but continuity of education for residents.
The ambulatory care practices serve as models for developing strong working relationships between physicians and office staff. Residents work closely with RNs, LPNs, and medical assistants, and thereby learn the day-to-day logistics of running a practice. Practice issues as well as interpersonal and medical issues are discussed at monthly meetings of residents, faculty, and staff.
