We are Northern New England's Premier Teaching Hospital. Find out what it’s like.
Welcome to Maine Medical Center and our Anesthesiology family! We both happen to be Maine natives, but we have the honor of sharing our educational experience with co-residents from across the globe. We have the opportunity to spend each day working with attending anesthesiologists who have trained in world-renowned clinical centers of excellence and have chosen to bring their skills and expertise to our medical center. We were drawn to the program by the incredible clinical experience that comes with being one of only fifteen clinical anesthesia residents in an OR environment that provides 39,000 anesthetics per year. Residents have priority for the best cases appropriate for their level of training every day; there is no shortage of complex cardiac and aortic surgery, thoracic surgery, neurosurgery, pediatric surgery and high-risk obstetrics. When we’re not providing direct anesthesia care in the OR, we gain experience in regional anesthesia, PACU management, outpatient preoperative evaluation, inpatient acute pain management, cardiovascular and surgical critical care, and outpatient chronic pain. As senior residents, we gain experience supervising nurse anesthetists in the care team model at a small community hospital 25 minutes from Maine Medical Center. We have weekly non-clinical days for out of OR learning including lectures, oral and written board preparation, high fidelity simulation exercises, journal clubs and protected time to work on research and quality improvement projects.
The icing on the cake is the opportunity for fun with family and friends when the work is done. If we’re not in the hospital there is a good chance we’re enjoying the fare at one of Portland’s local restaurants, running along the ocean front, biking in the woods, skiing down the slopes, enjoying a local microbrew, surfing at the beach, or hiking up the mountain. We pride ourselves on being a small, tight-knit, family-friendly program and we welcome you to visit Maine.
