The application process allows the faculty and residents of the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho to thoroughly review each applicant’s credentials prior to extending an invitation to interview. Applications will only be accepted through the ERAS system. Interviews will be scheduled during the fall/winter. The interview allows the applicant an opportunity to discuss the program with the faculty and residents, meet with staff members and examine the facilities and hospitals. Spouse or significant are encouraged to participate in the interview day, including a spouse-hosted lunch and informal dinner hosted by our residents and faculty. Arrangements for them to meet the spouses of current residents will be made. A short tour of Boise is scheduled on the drive to each hospital for the hospital tours.
