Scott Hippe, MD

Boise Program
Class of 2019

Howdy folks, my name is Scott and I am one of the FMRI residents entering in 2016. My journey to family medicine was fairly straightforward; I did a five-month rural rotation program in my third year and was impressed by the community of family physicians there. I was hooked by the specialty’s broad scope of practice and long-term relationship with patients. The icing on the cake is that it also allows me to practice in desirable places and fits within the overall health needs of the country. I showed up at FMRI and it did not take long for my wife to whisper to me “Scott, I think you found your people.” I was inspired by the rigorous overall curriculum here and the chance to develop skills in a few of my specific interests (global health, obstetrics, procedures relevant to rural practice). Outside of medicine, there are a few “-ing” words that seem to follow me around. Examples include traveling, camping, writing, cooking, guitaring, and eating. I also try to stay active in a number of ways such as cycling and running. After college I spent two months pedaling my bike from Seattle to New York, accumulating an impressive array of spandex-tan lines. A few years ago I snuck into the back of the pack at the Boston Marathon and then spent multiple successive hours asking myself “what in the world were you thinking?” More physics-dependent endeavors, such as climbing, mountain biking, and basketball, are not my strong suit but I enjoy nonetheless. Both my wife and I saw Boise as a place highly conducive to many of our interests, and are excited to get started with both our jobs and our pastimes here.
