Rural Residents Benefit from Regional Health Doctors

Regional Hospital Family Medicine Residency Clinic provides medical services for those in need in the area while offering additional training for those wanting to specialize in family medicine.  The Rapid City Journal reports that this residency program takes three years for students to graduate from and provides health services in an area that may not have them otherwise.  Residents in the program do exams, refill prescriptions, answering questions, and ordering/analysing lab tests.  The facility averages 12,000 outpatient visits and about 1200 inpatient visits each year.
