Favorite Place in Maine: So far, Babb’s Bridge & Crescent Beach. But I haven’t been to Acadia yet...
Why MMC: The perfect mix - great people, a system that is the catch-all for the entire state of Maine, hands-on ED ownership of patients, all in a beautiful place to live and raise a family. I did my away here in July and it was readily apparent that the faculty were sincerely invested in my training and personal success. Residents were friendly and happy, yet still challenged every shift. Great hybrid program - a Level I community system supported by strong academics without being ‘academic.’ I could not be happier with my decision!
