Maine Medical Center

Apply & Contact

MMC participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), and all PGY-1 residents in the institution are selected by this process. All applications will be handled according to the rules of the plan. We use the electronic residency application service (ERAS). Maine Medical Center is only able to sponsor applicants/residents who carry a J-1 Visa at this time (F-1 visa applicants are not eligible to apply.)

Each medical student must complete the ERAS application, which includes a transcript of grades, Dean's letter (Medical Student Performance Evaluation) and three letters of recommendation. Maine Medical Center is a full participant in the APGO/CREOG Right Resident, Right Program, Ready Day One, including the Alignment Check Index. National leaders from APGO and CREOG have been working to smooth the UME to GME transition. As part of that initiative, collectively agreed upon national standards exist around the OBGYN residency application and interview process. For more information on OBGYN SLOE and the RRR Grant please reference the APGO website. There are excellent resources to guide candidate students through the application process. Maine Medical Center adheres to all of these guidelines, including a strongly recommended Standardized Letter of Evaluation (SLOE). We will review all applicants if they have a USMLE or COMLEX score, but an applicant must have one or the other. Applications must be received by October 1st. After all of these materials have been received, the application will be reviewed and a decision made concerning a personal interview.

Please note: It is strongly considered that applicant candidates possess a valid driver’s license and automobile to enable them to get to offsite rotations/surgeries, although this is not a firm requirement.


We will be booking all of our interviews through Thalamus. Initial release of interviews will be on October 24th, with rolling offers to follow. Please note that an offer of an interview is not a guarantee for a candidate to interview, and candidates must accept the invitation within a timely manner. Again, in compliance with APGO/CREOG guidelines, if interviews have not been accepted within 48 hours of invitation, those offers may be extended to alternate candidates and the initial offer may no longer be valid.

Interviews will be completely virtual and are scheduled in the fall through early winter. We have a committed group of core physicians who volunteer to interview every year, and include residents as formal interviewers. Candidates will have opportunities to discuss the program with the Residency Director, faculty, and residents. Specific dates will be determined by October 1.
