Boise Curriculum

The curriculum is designed to broadly prepare the physician for Family Medicine in a rural or underserved setting. Therefore, it includes a strong emphasis in medicine, obstetrics, pediatrics, emergency medicine, behavioral medicine and surgical procedures and assisting that is not found in many other programs. During their three years the residents have increasing responsibilities in patient care, management of their own continuing education, and participation in the management of the Family Medicine Health Center. They also participate in organized medicine and various committee functions within the hospitals, the communities, the state, and the nation. The Residency strives to help our physicians develop a sustainable medical lifestyle that will provide them with long term satisfaction and deep meaning and inspiration in the practice of Family Medicine.
