Eastern Maine Medical Center, Center for Family Medicine (Union St)
The EMMC Center for Family Medicine (CFM), the model clinic for the residency program, is a state of the art facility about eight miles from the medical center. This facility has 32 exam rooms, all of which have access to the hospital electronic medical record system (including our Radiology system), the residency’s electronic medical record system and a variety of electronic database reference systems such as Up-to-date. There are also two procedure rooms, a NST room, and several rooms with modern osteopathic manipulative medicine tables. Six of the exam rooms are equipped with a video observation system used for direct video precepting.
CFM has more than 30,000 outpatient visits annually. Patients are assigned to residents as their primary care providers. This allows residents to develop and maintain continuity of care with their patients throughout the three year residency.
CFM is located inside a larger facility, the Eastern Maine Healthcare Mall, which houses other outpatient services, including a full service laboratory, a commercial pharmacy, x-ray department, physical therapy, occupational therapy, an urgent care Walk In Clinic, and the EMMC Diabetes, Endocrine and Nutrition Center.
At CFM you are given your own work station which you can make your own. Also there is a precepting room staffed by family physicians daily, both MD and DO, and there is always a preceptor for Osteopathic manipulation available.
