Family Medicine Residency of Western Montana

First-Class Medicine in the Last Best Place

Welcome to the Family Medicine Residency of Western Montana

The Family Medicine Residency of Western Montana is a three-year family medicine program sponsored by The University of Montana and affiliated with the University of Washington Family Medicine Residency Network.

FMRWM was founded on the belief that a residency program should develop excellent physicians and should serve the community, whether in a bustling university town or a hamlet of 200 people. And, since we are fortunate enough to call Western Montana home, the program aims to inspire a work/life balance that nurtures both personal and professional passions.

Welcome to Western Montana. Welcome to the Last Best Place.

Message from the Director & DIO

WELCOME to the Family Medicine Residency of Western Montana!

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and learn more about us. We are a new residency located in a vibrant mountain setting that offers excellence in both medicine and quality of life.

Our primary purpose is to create compassionate, capable family physicians to serve and lead in our rural communities and care for the underserved patients of our state. At the same time, we believe that residency is also a place to nurture life skills and foster the development of healthy physicians with rich, balanced lives.

We have assembled the resources of The University of Montana, 2 community health centers, 3 hospitals, a core faculty with diverse experience and expertise, and multiple regional physicians to create a unique program that will provide excellent training in all aspects of Family Medicine.

We are seeking a class of residents who are not only interested in learning but also eager to assist us in shaping our program into one that fulfills all of our dreams! Do you have the skills and pioneering spirit to join us in the endeavor?

Please contact us if you have questions and consider joining us in Western Montana, where we see a bright future for Family Medicine under the Big Sky!
