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. Mark Lee, program director, and our team of physicians and staff have over 150 years of experience in medical education and primary patient care.
The Billings Clinic Internal Medicine Residency is designed to train internists to care for complex medically ill patients in rural environments. The learning model integrates competency-based residency training into a modern functional patient-centered medical home.
