Seven Mid Coast Hospital physicians were recently honored for their teaching of Tufts University School of Medicine/Maine Medical Center Longitudinal Integrated Curriculum students at Mid Coast Hospital.

Dr. Ira Bird, Dr. Lawrence Fischman, Dr. Amina Hanna, Dr. David Inger, Dr. Lisa Anderson, Dr. Roy Nakamura, and Dr. James Rines received Citations for Excellence in Teaching from Tufts University School of Medicine.

Mid Coast Hospital has participated as a training site for the TUSM/MMC LIC program since 2011. Through this program medical students explore multiple medical disciplines including OB/GYN, Pediatrics, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Psychiatry, and General Surgery. The program allows students to fulfill their third-year core competencies while offering a uniquely broad view of the variety of comprehensive care patients receive throughout life.

"As in years past, we are delighted to have so many Mid Coast Hospital providers receive Citations for Outstanding Teaching," said Dr. Marybeth Ford, director of the LIC program at Mid Coast Hospital. "Their ongoing level of commitment and professionalism attests to the high-quality medical education students receive at our institution. Mid Coast Hospital is honored to participate in the TUSM/MMC LIC program and very appreciative for this recognition."
