To Apply


In order to be eligible for appointment as a fellow, a candidate must have graduated from an LCME-accredited medical school in the US or Canada or from an AOA-accredited college of osteopathic medicine in the US. Candidates who graduated from a medical school outside of the US or Canada may be eligible – please refer to the FAQs regarding international medical school graduates.

Candidates must also have successfully completed a three-year residency in internal medicine or family medicine, in a program accredited by the ACGME, ACGME-I, RCPSC, or CFPC, or approved by the AOA.

In order to be appointed to a geriatric medicine fellowship position with us, a candidate must be eligible for full, permanent medical licensure in Maine.


MDFMR’s Geriatric Medicine Fellowship participates in the National Resident Matching Program’s match process. Applications should be submitted through ERAS. We do consider nontraditional applicants – candidates who are interested in our program without applying through ERAS should contact the fellowship’s program coordinator for information about the process.
