St. Mary's Grows as a Teaching Hospital

St. Mary's welcomes two new third year medical students who will be working with Anne Brown, MD and several other providers in an innovative educational opportunity. Traditionally, students follow a provider as they access and treat patients. This program takes a longitudinal approach to learning. Students will instead follow patients (with their permission) as they navigate the health care system. This will broaden their perspective on the patients experience while exposing them to a wide variety of clinical care.

"For years, my life's goal has been to become a physician and help those around me whom I care about so much. Maine is where I want to practice. Its breathtaking beauty and wonderful residents will remain in my heart forever, and I would welcome the opportunity to practice in a rural Maine hospital."
