Leadership in Preventive Medicine

The Maine Medical Center Leadership in Preventive Medicine (LPM) fellowship program is part of the Division of Community Health and Preventive Medicine –  an interdisciplinary division of clinical departments including family medicine, internal medicine and pediatrics. 

Our faculty and staff are part of Preventive Medicine Enhancement for Maine (PrevME), a clinical prevention and community and public health program. PrevME programs are the site for much of the LPM fellows' learning and leadership training.

Our vision is to train a cadre of physician leaders creating programs, policies and environments to address health promotion and disease prevention on an individual and population level in Maine. Our graduates will:

  • Address population health needs by working within health systems and institutions, with policymakers, public health entities and clinical and patient advocacy groups
  • Provide leadership within their clinical specialty—using accountable, population-based approaches to care that reduce the incidence and burden of acute and chronic disease and injury
  • Practice, master, and spread improvements in patient safety and quality of care
  • Develop the skills needed to successfully advocate for preventive medicine in health care policy
  • Enhance, through education, the effectiveness of healthcare and improve the health of Maine citizens

We have numerous academic and clinical partners and can tailor the educational program to meet your current and future professional goals within preventive medicine. Our program will give you training for a successful career in clinical preventive medicine and public health.

Our two-year program consists of:

  • Academic course work leading to an MPH
  • A practicum project working with mentors in your primary clinical specialty for impact on quality, safety and population health
  • Clinical work in your primary clinical specialty
  • Public health engagement at the local and state level
  • Leadership curriculum providing skills to build collaborations across disciplines and with an emphasis on integrative medicine and health care disparities faced by Maine populations

Please feel free to contact us for more information about whether LPM training is right for you. We are confident that our ACGME-approved program has the depth and breadth in clinical, educational and advocacy arenas to prepare the next generation of Maine’s physician leaders.
