Our mission is to train psychiatrist-leaders, who will become change agents in the rural communities they serve, by uncovering and nurturing their passions, teaching them evidence-based clinical skills, and inspiring innovative approaches to closing gaps in community-based systems of mental health care.
A Message From the Training Track Director
Welcome to the Montana Track at Billings Clinic, a regional track of the University Washington Psychiatry Residency Training Program.
We are delighted to show you what we have to offer! When you match to our program you will spend the first half of your training in Seattle at the University of Washington. There you can take advantage of a large academic university environment with a broad range of opportunities for research and learning. Those two years will give you a solid foundation in evaluation, and treatment of psychiatric disorders.
During PGY-3 and PGY-4 years you will continue your training at Billings Clinic, a nationally recognized multispecialty group practice. In Billings you will gain real world clinical experience. You will become an expert and teacher delivering evidence-based mental healthcare. You will deepen your knowledge through ongoing didactics, supervision and clinical experiences that are coordinated across your years in Seattle and Billings. You will become an integral part of a team that includes outstanding faculty, multidisciplinary professionals and trainees. Your training will take place in a state of the art, cutting edge environment providing the highest quality psychiatric care. Please spend some time looking around. We hope to hear from you!

A Message From The University of Washington Program Director
Welcome from Seattle!
I am excited that you are considering training in the Montana Track at Billings Clinic! As the University of Washington program director and partner in this effort, I am excited to support a program that offers an excellent opportunity to build a foundation in clinical skills during the first two years in Seattle and then spend two years in Montana learning a variety of strategies to deliver psychiatric care in under-resourced and rural settings. I think a particular strength of our program is the supportive resident community, and we hope you will come explore what we have to offer.
Anna Ratzliff, MD, Program Director, The University of Washington
Enthusiastic and committed, Billings Clinic Psychiatry Residency faculty look forward to making a difference for residents selected for this program.
