Founded in 1995, the Montana Family Medicine Residency has established a solid track record for training physicians to meet the challenges of practicing in rural and underserved areas.  More than 60 percent of our graduates now practice in Montana. While some residents grew up in the state, most are transplants who chose to make Montana their home.
