Montana residency program to expand with grant

   BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) -- A program in Billings that trains family practice
physicians has received a $450,000 grant.
   The Billings Gazette reports in a story on Friday that the grant made
possible through the Affordable Care Act will allow the Montana Family
Residency Program to train three additional residents in family practice
 medicine.
   The residency program trains doctors with the goal of getting them to remain
in the state.
   With the grant, the program will have eight positions each year in the three-
year program with 24 slots.
   The residency program is housed at RiverStone Health. President and CEO
John Felton says 73 percent of the graduates go on to practice medicine in
Montana.
   He says the state needs family physicians in rural areas.
