The Maine Medical Center is committed to providing continuing medical education (CME) and research opportunities for our medical staff and trainees. These opportunities include formal coursework, participation in clinical and basic research seminars, and involvement in ongoing clinical or basic research projects.
Courses and Seminar Series
The Center for Molecular Medicine at the Maine Medical Center Research Institute host a weekly seminar series with internationally renowned research scientists in the biomedical sciences. Everyone is welcome to attend these seminars, and continuing education credits are offered for attendance.
Weekly one-hour departmental Grand Rounds occur in the Dana Education Center at Maine Medical Center for the departments of Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Geriatrics, Medicine, OB/Gyn, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Social Work and Surgery. Grand Rounds include research presentations, journal clubs, current disease controversies, clinical roundtables, new therapeutic approaches, conferences, and presentations of clinical syndromes. Category 1 CMEs are available for Grand Rounds participants.
The Maine Medical Center Research Institute is composed of basic and clinical research laboratories that support the research training of professionals (physicians), medical trainees (residents, medical students), scientists, and scientists-in-training (postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduate students). Examples of these opportunities include our Summer Student Research Program and Postdoctoral Fellowships. The Mentored Research Committee offers competitive grant awards to support trainee research projects.
Participants in research projects are encouraged to present the results of their research to the Maine Medical Center community and at national meetings.
