Internal Medicine Residency Program
Billings Clinic is establishing Montana’s first Internal Medicine residency program. Dr. Roger Bush, Program Director, and Dr. Steve Gerstner, Associate Program Director, and a team of physicians and staff have been laying the ground work for this new program.
Billings Clinic applied to the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education in the Fall of 2012, completed the site evaluation process in February 2013, and received accreditation May 22, 2013.
There is a severe chronic shortage of primary care physicians in Montana and across the country. This residency will help to address this crisis, with the aim of highest quality, safest, reliable care in the patient's community.
The learning model will integrate competency-based residency training into a patient-centered medical home and the existing Accountable Care Organization.
Dr. Bush, a Montana native, has an extensive background in medical education, including serving as program director Program Director, at the Internal Medicine Residency at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle.
"Billings Clinic has an exceptional learning environment. That’s why I was eager to return and build a program that will allow residents to learn from master clinicians in an innovative organization that is on the frontier of medicine.”
The Internal Medicine Residency Program at Billings Clinic will:
- Provide training in outpatient and hospital settings
- Teach our methods for providing care to our rural communities through collaboration, technology and outreach clinics
