Magic Valley Rural Training Track
South Central Idaho, commonly known as the “Magic Valley” due to the phenomenal growth of crops, is now also “magic” due to the medical community and the extremely broad training offered here. Residents will become a member of the physician team serving the rural community of Jerome while having the benefit of rotations with specialists in the referral community of Twin Falls, located only 15 miles away. The flexibility and adaptation of this program to both the professional and personal needs of the residents is aimed to achieve the balance necessary to create patient oriented, well-prepared, fulfilled family physicians. Our program offers strong training in maternity care and medical/surgical procedures.
The Magic Valley RTT began in 2009 and is now graduating two residents per year. The first year of training is completed in Boise with the core residency program. The second and third year residents complete their training in Magic Valley (about 120 miles east of Boise). All graduates are successfully board certified and our graduates practice in diverse settings, including rural and international settings. Medical students interested in the Magic Valley RTT program must submit an application through ERAS with details included in the Boise application. Applicants invited to interview for the Magic Valley RTT will also be interviewing in Boise at the core residency program.
