Prior to moving to Montana in 2010, Dr. Smith lived and trained in the Midwest. His undergraduate degree was from Anderson University in Indiana, medical degree from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Missouri and pediatric residency in Columbus, Ohio.  His fellowship was a four year dual fellowship in Pediatric Critic Care and Pulmonology through Case Western Reserve University and Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital in Cleveland.  He remained there for over 20 years while conducting research in asthma with funding from the NIH, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and American Lung Association.  After his 2 children graduated from college, he decided to move to enjoy Montana’s scenery and outdoor sports.  His present practice is focused on pediatric lung diseases including bronchoscopy and pediatric critical care. He continues research focused on the effects of environmental smoke on children’s health through the University of Montana.  Dr. Smith is also the Director of the Montana Pediatric Clinical Trials Network funded by the NIH.
