Our goal at Pierre Rural Family Medicine Residency is to train competent and compassionate family physicians that are prepared to serve in rural communities. Residents practice medicine hundreds of miles away from big referral centers and become very comfortable in providing high-quality medical care in a limited-resource setting. The first year of training takes place in Sioux Falls, where you will work alongside Sioux Falls Family Medicine Residency residents to achieve high-volume obstetrics, inpatient, and critical care training. After year one, you will transition to Pierre, where you will mold the second and third years to your future practice. Pierre offers so much for an outdoor enthusiast as it is a premier outdoor activity destination!
