A Long History of Innovation
MMC has a national reputation as a leader in interprofessional, team-based training with an ACGME- and AMA- grant funded “Interprofessional Partnership to Advance Care and Education (iPACE)” grant. MMC is the flagship hospital of the MaineHealth system and is dedicated to training residents and fellowships in rural training centers across the state. MMC, along with the 3 other ACGME-accredited sponsoring institutions in Maine received a large grant to start the innovative “Maine Rural GME Education (MERGE) Collaborative" to create an infrastructure of rural GME training sites across rural Maine.
