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)327-4173  jlowery@communitymed.org 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.  


Montana RN licensure is required for all RN to BSN and graduate level nursing students.  The RN may participate in a clinical rotation for up to 30 days if they hold an active licensure in a Compact State.  Otherwise, the RN needs to apply for a Montana RN license.  Clinical experiences may not start until the license is active.
