Briana Hill, MD


I was born and raised in southern California. After completing my undergraduate studies at the University of California, I joined the United States Navy and then began medical school at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland.  I returned to California after medical school for a transitional internship at Balboa Naval Hospital in San Diego.

I practiced general medicine for three years at Branch Medical Clinic in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, before returning stateside to complete residency in dermatology at the University of Colorado in Denver. There I met Dr. Tamara Poling, my long-time friend and present colleague at The Skin Institute at Rapid City Medical Center. 

Dr. Poling and I remained friends for the next fifteen years while I finished my tour with the Navy. During that time, I served as the Department Head of Dermatology at the National Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, and worked at the Office of the Attending Physician at the State Capitol. I retired as a Captain of the United States Navy in 2006 and was recruited to Rapid City Medical Center shortly thereafter.

My family and I enjoy the Black Hills very much and I am thankful for the opportunity to practice here. I have four lovely children, three girls and one boy, who adjusted very well to the community. We like to go camping, play tennis, travel around and outside the United States and play with our dogs—one labradoodle and one border collie/golden retriever mix.
