Central Maine Medical Center Family Medicine Residency provides clinical and educational experiences to third year core students and fourth year elective students. We are a very competitive site for clinical rotations. You are encouraged to apply months in advance in order to secure an approved rotation.
Our residency is a host Core Clerkship site for the entire third year of clinical experiences for the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine (UNECOM). We accept a total of 8 students from UNECOM that are matched to our site through a lottery process.
