Student Affiliation Program

Student Affiliation Program

Definition: A formal program of study in which the student is currently enrolled in an school sponsored, credit class or program and is seeking a rotation at Community Medical Center. A formal affiliation agreement between the school and the facility has to be in place for this program. Please contact the Student Coordinator at (406)327-4009  if you have any questions about an agreement for your school.

Note: If you are a Medical Student - please find your needed documents here

An affiliation agreement needs to be in place to go forward with a student placement for educational rotations. This can sometimes take some time. Please contact us as soon as possible to ensure an agreement is current and in place well in advance of an educational experience. This cannot be done by the individual departments and must be approved by the Student Affiliations department.
