Adding Value Where We Live and Beyond

Spectrum Healthcare Partners physicians live in the communities we serve. Spectrum physicians provide many hours of uncompensated care and generously support hospitals through capital campaign donations and annual giving programs.  We are actively involved in the community because, like you, we want to foster healthy, well-rounded communities. Spectrum physicians give back to the communities as major financial supporters for cancer events, children’s programs, cultural events, and educational programs.

Medical Staff Consultation & Education

Spectrum Healthcare Partners’ Philosophy includes investing in improving healthcare resources by dedicating time and training resources. As a result, select staff from each of our clinical divisions share their expertise to foster learning opportunities and consultative guidance. Our physicians staff dozens of multidisciplinary conferences, working with physicians from diverse disciplines. The expertise of our Anesthesiologists, Orthopaedists, Pathologists, Radiation Oncologists and Radiologists is requested for conferences with hospital medical staff throughout Maine. In addition, we provide ongoing educational opportunities during the “Grand Round” forums conducted at area hospitals.


Training Opportunities for Medical Students

In addition to directing residency training programs, many of our physicians serve on the facilities of medical schools across new England, including the University of new England, Tufts University, and the University of Vermont.  Robert Cawley, D.O., serves as the Chair of the Pathology Department at the University of New England (UNE).  Our Radiologists support Eastern Maine Medical Center’s affiliation with UNE through both teaching conferences and one-on-one mentoring of medical students and family practice residents. At Maine Medical Center (MMC) our physicians have provided education to medical students through the University of Vermont’s College of Medicine, and have recently become affiliated with the Tufts University School of Medicine.


Radiology Residency Training

Charles Grimes, M.D. serves as Program Director for Maine Medical Center’s Radiology Residency Program. The curriculum includes twice daily conferences and education in general radiology, mammography, nuclear radiology, cardiac radiology, pediatric, angiography, vascular and interventional, body CT, neuro CT, MRI, ultrasonography, radiation oncology, and electives.  Residents work under the supervision of Spectrum Healthcare Partners’ Radiologists, who provide feedback and promote the learning experience.


Anesthesiology Residency Training

Angus Christie, M.D., serves as the Program Director of MMC’s Anesthesiology Residency Training Program.  Anesthesiology is a specialty requiring the daily application of the principals of pharmacology and physiology in the care of patients.  James Flowerdew M.D., Associate Residency Director, and Brian McAllister, M.D., coordinate the medical student education curriculum and research. Our entire team of Anesthesiologists ensures that each resident receives a complete training experience in all forms of patient monitoring, general and regional anesthetics, didactic training, and clinical research.
