Medical Student Rotations

WWAMI Billings Track

The University of Washington School of Medicine trains medical students in a five-state region, through WWAMI, an acronym for the participating states of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho.

The Billings Track allows third-year students to complete all or most of their clerkship requirements including:

  • Internal Medicine
  • Pediatrics
  • Surgery
  • Psychiatry
  • Family Medicine
  • OB/GYN
We welcome third- and fourth-year medical students for required and elective rotations through the University of Washington WWAMI program.

 Some complete most of their third year of medical school in Billings, while others choose one or more rotations in Billings. We also provide fourth-year family medicine sub-internships that are open to students from other medical schools.

Our rotations provide medical students an opportunity to learn clinical decision-making skills from faculty in hospital and clinical settings joining the team to:

  • Take patient histories
  • Perform physical examinations
  • Assist in procedures

Our faculty is committed to high-quality patient care and has a longstanding tradition of providing educational opportunities in a supportive learning atmosphere.

During rotations, students will interact with faculty and resident physicians in the Montana Family Medicine Residency at RiverStone Health (MFMR). Montana’s first residency training program, MFMR has graduated 160 family medicine physicians and nearly 100 practice in Montana.

Required fourth year rotations in Neurology, Neurosurgery and Emergency Medicine are available along with electives in:

  • Anesthesiology
  • Dermatology
  • Orthopedics
  • Palliative Care
  • Pathology
  • Pediatric Sub-Specialty
  • Radiology
  • Urology

Students rotate through multiple sites, including: RiverStone Health, Billings Clinic, St. Vincent Healthcare/Intermountain Health, Billings Surgical Associates, Internal Medicine Associates and The Children’s Clinic.

Family Medicine Sub-Internships

We provide intellectually challenging and rewarding sub-internship opportunities for students in their fourth year of medical school. Students work side-by-side with faculty physicians to care for patients.

During the Family Medicine sub-internships, students rotate with the Montana Family Medicine Residency faculty and resident physicians at our RiverStone Health Clinic as well as at community hospitals and rural clinics.

Applications for sub-internships are accepted from February 1 to March 15 prior to the academic year of the requested rotation. Available rotation dates are given on application. Please indicate your top three preferences. Additional applications may be considered after the deadline, depending on space availability.
