What do our Residents do after Residency?
The short answer: anything they want to. One if the core missions of this program is to exceptionally train and prepare our graduates for any opportunities they wish to pursue in Obstetrics and Gynecology upon completion of residency. We have been very successful in achieving this goal.
We have had many residents pursue fellowships. In addition to the most recent fellowship placements, additional residents have pursued MFM fellowships at Brigham and Women's Hospital, University of Iowa and Tufts University Medical Center. Residents have completed Reproductive Endocrinology fellowships at University of Pittsburgh, and Duke University Medical Center. Prior residents have completed Urogynecology fellowships at Johns Hopkins University and the University of Rochester. In addition to these traditional three and four year fellowships, other residents have completed fellowships including Pelvic Reconstruction at Dartmouth University and Laparoscopic Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery at Northside Hospital in Atlanta, GA. Another recent graduate completed a fellowship in Reproductive Infectious Disease at Magee Womens’ Hospital in Pittsburgh. One of our former residents recently completed a Family Planning Clinical Care Fellowship at Emory.
Many graduates also chose to pursue wide and varied career paths that do not include fellowship training and we are equally proud of their success and equally committed to preparing them for those careers. Many of our graduating residents choose to practice medicine in the beautiful state of Maine, providing exceptional medical care in rural communities and in the Portland area. Former residents practice in many states across the country, from Florida to Colorado to Washington to Alaska. Some of these residents remain active in academics, teaching residents and medical students, including a large number practicing locally who have joined our volunteer faculty.
