Incoming Internal Medicine Residents have Montana and Wyoming Ties

Billings, MT— Billings Clinic is pleased to announce that ten Internal Medicine Residency spots were filled through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). An additional second year resident will also join the program. Eight out of the eleven incoming residents grew up in Montana or Wyoming.

The NRMP Match uses a computerized mathematical algorithm to align the preferences of applicants with the preferences of residency program directors in order to fill available training positions. Billings Clinic received approximately 2,300 applications from students interested in the Internal Medicine Residency and invited 133 applicants for interviews.  

 “We are very pleased to have matched with so many applicants who have roots in our regional community. For many of the new residents, training with our program is an opportunity to come home,” said Roger Bush, MD, program director. “The Internal Medicine Residency is designed to train doctors who will settle in our area to practice. We were diligent in ranking exceptional medical students who are passionate about primary, team-based care.”  

The physician residents start in July of 2015 and will see patients as part of the internal medicine health care team. Six of these new doctors will be first-year internal medicine residents and will be enrolled in the program for three years. Four of the recruits will spend one year at Billings Clinic before going on to finish their chosen specialty area of radiology, anesthesiology, or physical medicine and rehabilitation. One of the residents is a second-year transfer and will complete his training in two years.

The new residents include learners from University of Washington, Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine, Des Moines University, Poznan University of Medical Sciences, University of Guadalajara, University of Queensland, University of Nevada and Western University.
