UND program to train family medicine doctors in Hettinger, Williston
A state college program will bring future family doctors to train in Hettinger and Williston.
The program requires physicians who have completed medical school to complete a three-year residency to gain board certification in family medicine. Students will spend the first year at the UND Center for Family Medicine in Bismarck and Minot. The final two will be spent in Hettinger and Williston.
Doctors that complete their residency in North Dakota are more likely to stay in the state, said Joshua Wynne, UND vice president for health affairs and dean of the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences. The program could help keep doctors in the area.
