- About Us
Each resident physician has a family physician faculty advisor. Advisors review performance and evaluations with the resident, and provide mentoring on a regular basis. The advisor serves as the resident's advocate in the educational system, and assists in developing individualized educational plans to reach present and future goals.
Our program is actively participating in studies coordinated by the AAFP National Research Network. Recent projects include the Asthma Tools Study and GoDiabetes. Faculty members also participate in their own research projects. In addition, resident physicians are involved in personal research projects and quality improvement projects. Personal research is presented at our annual research colloquium. Our residents also present at local, state, and national conferences.
There are numerous opportunities for moonlighting in western North Dakota for residents with appropriate visa status and in good academic standing in the residency program. Moonlighting hours are included in the maximum 80 hours per week duty hour limits mandated by the ACGME.
All resident physicians in their third year have the opportunity to serve as the clinical chief of our adult medicine service. Third year residents also serve as mentors for interns. Our residents, at every level, also serve on numerous residency committees and also on important hospital committees. We encourage and support our residents in pursuing leadership activities at the state and national levels.
Our residents become involved in the community in a variety of ways including community service projects, caring for patients at the free clinic, presenting at community education events, and participating in various community activities.
