Introduction

Bozeman, Montana is located in the mountains of southwest Montana and is the home of Montana State University. Our community of 50,000 (plus 12,000 MSU students during the school year) is the fastest growing of all Montana towns and cities. Our outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities are a magnet to people of all ages and all walks of life across the United States. (Bring along your bike, backpack, and canoe!) Our OB/GYN clinic merged with the Billings Clinic on January 1, 2005, bringing to Bozeman a vast array of medical expertise and clinical research activities. We are committed to healthcare, education, and research.
