CMC is committed to providing high quality medical education rotations to students of affiliated schools for required and elective rotations. All rotations are scheduled through the hospital’s Learning & Advancement Center.
A formal affiliation agreement between the school and the facility has to be in place for this program. 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. Please contact MBailey@communitymed.org, (406)327-4585 if you have any questions about an agreement for your school.
Please review the attached documents that include the requirements for doing an educational rotation at Community Medical Center.
