Josephine Conte, DO
Maine Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency Program
I was born in New York, in the Mohawk Valley region. I earned first undergraduate degree in Dance with a minor in Psychology from SUNY Brockport in 1982. After moving to Manhattan to pursue dance theater, I completed training at the Swedish Institute School for Massage Therapy in 1990. Through the exploration of energy medicine, shiatsu and vibrational healing, I found my way to the world of childbirth education and labor support and after moving to Maine worked at Maine Medical Center as a doula, and childbirth educator and later as a doula trainer and education director for Ballard House Birth Center in Portland, ME. I established Baraka! Middle eastern Dance Ensemble and was an active performer with her musicians and dancers throughout New England. I was called to Osteopathy in 2002 and after postdoctoral training at the University of Southern Maine pursued studies at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine (UNECOM), graduating in 2011. I did both Family Medicine and Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (ONMM) residencies at Maine-Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency in Augusta, ME. I am boarded in Family, Neuromusculoskeletal and Integrative Medicine. I am presently an associate professor of family medicine for UNECOM and returned to Maine Dartmouth as faculty for Family Medicine and ONMM. I am grateful for to Lewis Mehl -Madrona and have studied indigenous healing since 2008. I honor traditional healing models and am trained in Japanese style acupuncture and yoga and am a forever student of Ayurveda. Dance, bodies in motion, breath and space-time-force guide me. I currently practice medicine at the Maine Collaborative Care Center in Waterville, Maine and the Alfond Center for Health, a general hospital in Augusta, Maine. I live on a lake in Winthrop with my husband and dog. I am mother to two “adult” children, Alexandra who resides in NM and Maxim, in ME who both carry on the light.
