Q2 reports that a new psychiatric residency program is coming to Billings Clinic. Montana, Wyoming and Alaska are the only three states in the country with no psychiatric residency program, and they’re also consistently among the national leaders in suicide rates. The program, known as Montana Track, will be built on a $3 million donation from the Helmsley Charitable Trust. It was officially endowed on Thursday. The donation comes from the Trust’s Rural Healthcare Program.
