Each September, the American Medical Association Women Physicians Section (WPS) honors physicians who have offered their time, wisdom and support to advance women with careers in medicine. The MMA joins the AMA in recognizing the historical contributions of women to medicine and will join them this month by highlighting Maine’s women physician leaders.
Amy Madden, MD, is the 6th female MMA President and is Clinical Medical Director at HealthReach Community Health Centers, in addition to her role at Belgrade Regional Health Center.
Dr. Amy Madden is a family physician and geriatrician originally from Scarborough, Maine. She completed residency in 2008 at Maine-Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency after attending Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. She earned her undergraduate degree in biology and anthropology at Dartmouth College in 1995.
“I’ve heard from many people throughout Maine, and have seen first-hand for many years, how Dr. Madden has made a significant impact on her patients, peers, community and state,” said Andy MacLean, CEO of the Maine Medical Association. MacLean added, “Physicians have always had a real opportunity to make a difference, and it’s even more evident now during the pandemic. Dr. Madden’s leadership has been incredibly impressive and her representation of the MMA has always been second to none.”
“Great leaders foster collaboration and transparency, however, character is of the utmost importance. Dr. Madden shows an impeccable ability to unify people behind a single purpose and frame questions for effective decision making. Her deliberate calm and ability to think clearly is rare, and exceeded only by her humility,” said MMA Director of Communications and Government Affairs, Dan Morin.
Following several years in primary care practice, Dr. Madden completed fellowship training in Geriatric Medicine in 2017. She is board-certified in Family Medicine and holds a Certificate of Added Qualification in Geriatric Medicine.
Dr. Madden also serves as chair of the Victim’s Compensation Board and remains a member of MaineGeneral’s Opiate Steering Committee after serving as co-chair. Her list of professional societies also includes, Alpha Omega Alpha, American Academy of Family Physicians, American Geriatrics Society, and the AMA.
Thank you for your contributions to medicine, Dr. Madden. We’re glad and proud to have your leadership.
To further acknowledge the impressive contributions of women physicians, the AMA developed an excellent video titled, “A profile of women physician leaders and pioneers.” It can be viewed here.
