Internal Medicine Residency Program
Billings Clinic established Montana’s first Internal Medicine residency program in 2014. The 3-year program combines education and research with practical clinical and hospital experience among a complex patient population.
Dr. Robert Ficalora, program director, and a team of physicians and staff have years of experience in medical education and primary patient care.
This program is designed to address the primary care shortage by training general internal medicine physicians to stay in the region. The learning model integrates competency-based residency training into a patient-centered medical home.
