Medical Education Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Maine Medical Center (MMC) is committed to sustaining a welcoming, respectful, equitable and inclusive medical training environment. We respect and value uniqueness — allowing medical students, residents and fellows to bring their whole selves to work. From different cultural influences, communication styles and language differences; to health disparities related to diversity — whether based on sex, gender identity, race, ethnicity, disability, socioeconomic or other backgrounds — the more we learn together and understand differences, the better we can serve our patients, and each other.

Medical Education at Maine Medical Center

From curriculum on health disparities, social justice and cultural humility; to community clinic rotations and didactic sessions led by DEI experts and individuals with lived experience. Together we are learning and working together toward a more diverse, equitable, inclusive and informed medical education experience.
