Doctors in our Family Medicine Residency (FMR) program work with accomplished physicians to provide comprehensive, longitudinal medical care to patients at our FMR Clinic in Rapid City and the Rapid City Hospital. The program focuses on providing high-quality care with concern for and understanding of patient needs within the context of their families. Our residents love practicing in the Black Hills, a mecca for outdoor recreation and beautiful scenery. The opportunities to experience nature and be active allow our providers to enjoy a wonderful work/life balance.
The Rapid City Hospital Family Medicine Residency Clinic is a 24,000-square-foot healing environment that includes 16 exam rooms, a dedicated procedure room, laboratory, radiology services and a medical records room. Patients at the FMR Clinic can receive minor surgical care, cryosurgery, OB ultrasonography, colposcopy and vasectomy. Residents have their own office, library and conference room. A food pantry was added to the clinic in 2018 to assist patients dealing with food insecurity.
Our curriculum is designed to provide residents with the training needed for a rewarding, diversified career in family medicine, often in a rural setting.
The training fully complies with regulations set forth by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), Residency Review Committee for Family Medicine (RRC-FM), and American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM).
Please note the current curriculum includes a rural training month in Year 2. Off-site rotations are also required in Year 1 for inpatient pediatrics and in Year 2 for pediatrics (ER) at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota – Minneapolis Campus. Housing is provided for all mandatory out-of-town rotations. A rotation stipend is paid for all out-of-town rotations whether mandatory or elective.
