Maine Medical Center Wins $14 Million Grant from AMA

MMC is one of 8 winners around the nation of the AMA's grants which are designed to transform residency to meet the changing workforce needs of the country's healthcare systems.

 

MMC is one of 8 winners around the nation of the AMA's grants which are designed to transform residency to meet the changing workforce needs of the country's healthcare systems. Its "Reimagining Residency" program was described in the AMA's press release as follows: "Maine Medical Center will enhance residency training and ensure readiness for practice by redesigning the clinical learning environment to prepare residents for interprofessional, team-based care. The project will build on a previous pilot that emphasized learning at the bedside, team involvement in care planning, patient and care-team cohorting, team members working at the top of their licenses, and rapid-cycle quality improvement."

The Maine Medical Association congratulates MMC and its parent corporation, MaineHealth, for this impressive achievement and its continuing work in training top quality physicians for Maine and elsewhere.
