John Williams, MDRural Program Director
While growing up in Pocatello, the young Dr. John Williams took to exploring the mountains of Idaho and fostering a love of the outdoors. After graduating from University of Nevada SOM in 2003 and following his residency completion in 2006 from Idaho State University Family Medicine Residency, he ventured to the Flathead Lake area of Montana. There he worked for a rural hospital doing full spectrum family medicine for the next 10 years. He participated in several organizations, including President of the Montana Academy of Family Physicians, board member of Montana Medical Association, and he served one year on Montana State Governor’s Council on Healthcare Innovation. With a desire to share his experiences and move closer to family, he joined Full Circle Health in the fall 2016. Here he is continuing his full spectrum practice by teaching new family physicians to broaden their skills and confidence. He is helping with the rural programs and developing a wilderness medicine curriculum. Free time is one of his favorite things and he can be found hiking the hills with his two boys, looking for mountains to climb and photos to take, sitting with a good book, contemplating the stars, laughing often and has been known to dabble in zymurgy.
