Infectious Disease Care
The Maine Medical Partners - Gilman Clinic provides the highest quality preventive care and treatment for patients with infectious diseases such as hepatitis and HIV. Our team includes infectious disease and liver specialists, advanced care specialty nurses, social workers, behavioral health professionals, pharmacists and nutritionists. Together, we provide advanced infectious disease care and personal attention to the complex needs of our patients.
We take an integrated approach to care, working closely with primary care providers and community service organizations across the region to coordinate patient support beyond infectious disease specialty care. We assess each patient's complete medical situation and recommend preventive care, such as immunizations. We also provide access to clinical trials of new treatments options.

Conditions We Treat
The Gilman Clinic is the only clinic of its kind in Maine. We offer on-site educational training and mentoring for a variety of health care disciplines, including:
• Nurse Practitioners
• Social workers
This training is provided by experienced practitioners in the fields of infectious disease, gastroenterology, family medicine, and behavioral health.
Each month we offer a virtual didactic and case review session to health center sites across the state of Maine. This session is part of the nationally recognized Project ECHO (Extension for Community Health Outcomes) model. This allows health care providers from any location to work with experts in the field on a care plan for their patient. Learn more about Project ECHO.
The Gilman Clinic is also an active regional partner of the New England AIDS Education and Training Center, offering a variety of outreach educational activities related to HIV/AIDS, co-infection and prevention.
