Resident & Student Rotations

Still in School?

Mid-Columbia Medical Center is proud to sponsor students and residents as a clinical site for many different types of rotations. Completing a rotation in a rural setting can prove to be an extremely valuable experience for anyone in a healthcare-related field, regardless of the specialty.

Students who have completed clinical rotations at MCMC agree that their time here with us helps broaden their perspective of what practicing rural medicine can offer. Our preceptors take the time to ensure that each student’s experience is positive and meaningful. They’re ready to have you by their side!
