CLASS OF 2015: We are now accepting applications for the 2014-2015 academic year from medical students who will graduate in the spring of 2015. These applications will be collected and reviewed in November 2013, and elective months will be assigned after Thanksgiving, 2013. The application is at the end of the student section.
Residents of any specialty, but especially emergency medicine and family practice, who will be completing their residencies in 2015, and sports medicine fellows in 2014-2015, are also welcome to apply.
Students of the Class of 2014: I have completely filled every spot for the academic year 2013-2014. There is a long waiting list for spots to open in the ski season of 2013-2014. I will still take names for the waiting list, which will have a greater chance of being called if you are interested in a position in the summer or fall of 2013.
Welcome to the Medical Clinic of Big Sky home page. I have developed and reshaped this website to serve 2 purposes. The first is to introduce 4th year medical students, medical residents, and sports medicine fellows to the elective program at the Medical Clinic of Big Sky. Medical students (MD & DO) from around the country (and around the world) have been coming to Big Sky since 1998 to take advantage of our unique clinical setting here in Montana. We offer this program throughout the entire year. Go to the ELECTIVES section to read more and to apply.
I also want this website to be a source of information for people who are visiting Big Sky. Travelers from all over the country (and all over the world) are coming to Big Sky to ski in the winter, and have all sorts of fun in the summer. Activities like skiing, snowboarding, and horseback riding are sometimes associated with injuries. Travelers, especially kids, come down with various illnesses, like colds, the flu, and gastroenteritis. The elevation of Big Sky (the resort is at 7,500 feet above sea level) can lead to altitude-related problems, even in healthy individuals. The Medical Clinic of Big Sky is prepared to handle ALL your medical needs here at the resort. Go to the VISITORS section to read more.
The Medical Clinic has two locations...our Mountain Office (slopeside, adjacent to the ski patrol first aid area) is open every day of the ski season. Parking available right outside our front door. During the "non-ski season", from mid April up to Thanksgiving, our Meadow Village location in the Town Center is our primary office, where we have standard weekday hours. During the ski season, the Town Center office will be open on Monday-Wednesday-Friday only for normal office hours.
