Nampa Program

Welcome to the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho Nampa Program. This is a new program, starting the first class in July 2019. This program is designed to prepare residents for practice in any setting, but particularly for the full-spectrum care needed in rural and underserved communities. In order to be prepared for this type of work, residents will need broad-scope, procedural training with emphasis on in-patient and emergency care. The Nampa Program is sponsored by the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho, an institution with over 40 years of knowledge, expertise, and success in family medicine resident education.

This community based program offers a vibrant learning platform that is both intimate and innovative. Here in Nampa, our faculty are passionate about training excellent Family Medicine physicians by creating a trusting environment for our patients in a well-established teaching health center/FQHC. Residents have the opportunity to become proficient in upper endoscopy, colonoscopies, obstetrics and other procedures. We are an unopposed program supported by St. Luke’s Nampa, a new community hospital where residents will spend most of their in-patient rotations. Residents are able to customize their education by participating in two away rotations (optional) and 3 rural rotations, providing an opportunity to learn how to meet the needs of their future communities. This flexibility in training is critical in building well-rounded, fulfilled physicians, prepared to practice in any setting they desire. Sub-intern rotations will be offered after July 2019.

Kim Stutzman, MD

Program Director Nampa / Chief Rural Officer

Dr. Stutzman grew up in Northern Michigan and trained at the University of Michigan School of Medicine. She completed a residency at Family Medicine Spokane. After a year at the University of Washington as a fourth year chief resident she settled in White Salmon, Washington in a small rural practice. After 12 years of wonderful, broad-spectrum, rural, community-based care she moved to Boise in 2007 to pursue teaching at the residency program. She has special interest areas in geriatrics, medical student teaching, and training the next generation of rural family doctors. When not at work she enjoys outdoor activities, camping, hiking, tandem bike riding and indoor activities of reading, sewing and spending time with her husband and two teen aged children.

Danielle Davies, MD

Family Medicine

Danielle was born in Neptune, NJ (really) and grew up in Howell, NJ. She denies association with any of the cast members of The Jersey Shore and doesn’t like it when you make Jersey rhyme with Boise. She grew up riding her bike to the beach, creating science experiments usually involving the mud hole in the front yard, and spending all of her vacation time in her family’s 200 year old farm house in Vermont. She attended Villanova University outside of Philadelphia but was sent back to NJ to attend Rutgers RWJ Medical School. While majoring in Biology as an undergraduate she studied abroad in Seville, Spain (but did go on a pinxos tour in the basque country and loved it). While in medical school she travelled to the Himalayas in Northern India as part of a travelling clinic. She loves international travel but has decided to dedicate more time to visiting our National Parks.
Danielle moved cross country after falling in love with Boise and now enjoys exploring “The West” on her days off. In her spare time, Danielle enjoys photography, skiing, and repurposing ugly furniture. Her special interests in medicine include obstetrics, women’s health, and LGBT healthcare.

India King, PsyD

Associate Director of Behavioral Sciences - Nampa

India King received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology with a focus in Health Psychology from Pacific University. She completed her doctoral internship at the White River Junction VA in Vermont and her postdoctoral fellowship at the Boise VA, with a focus on integrated primary care. She then joined the Boise VA’s Center of Excellence Primary Care Education, there she worked to develop and evaluate interprofressional educational innovations. Dr. King’s passions include graduate medical and interprofessional education, quality improvement, and primary care psychology. When she is not hard at work serving FMRI patients and the Nampa community or teaching residents, you can find her enjoying the outdoors mountain biking, bikepacking, fly fishing, or exploring Idaho’s many alpine lakes!

Kelsey Wertzler, MD

Family Medicine

Kelsey Wertzler grew up in Portland, Oregon and attended Washington State University for undergraduate and graduate school. Originally interested in cancer research, she earned Bachelor’s degrees in Biotechnology and Genetics/Cell Biology and later completed her Master’s of Science in Biochemistry. While studying at the Universidad de Sevilla in Seville, Spain she also completed a minor in Spanish language. Between summer classes, she enjoyed working as a white water rafting guide on the Salmon River out of Riggins, Idaho. Kelsey attended the University of Washington for medical school and enjoyed the opportunity to travel throughout the WWAMI region to complete her clinical courses. In medical school, she earned certificates for additional training in the areas of rural medicine, global health and Hispanic health. Destined for family medicine from the beginning, Kelsey was thrilled to match to the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho in Boise for her residency training.

Kelsey is grateful to continue with the FMRI family, now as a faculty member. Her areas of interest in medicine are gynecology, obstetrics, family planning, wilderness medicine, and integrative medicine. She loves practicing her Spanish skills with her many Spanish-speaking patients. Kelsey believes the most rewarding part of family medicine is developing long lasting relationships with patients and their families.

When not at work, she and her husband are usually outside, mountain biking in the foothills, and spending time in the Sawtoooths backcountry skiing or backpacking. Kelsey also enjoys gardening, baking and really difficult jigsaw puzzles.

Clinical Locations

Coming Soon...


Nampa has an authentic, small town feel. Located just west of Boise, Nampa has hidden charm as well as options for BIG city fun.  Residents in the Treasure Valley enjoy the four seasons and quick access to the wilderness. Whether you hunt and fish, hike, camp, mountain bike, or mountain climb, the Sawtooth mountains to the north and the Owyhee’s to the south give you ample opportunity to play. When the snow falls, skiing, snowmobile riding and other winter sports abound.  The wineries, river parks, and the shore of Lake Lowell offer beautiful places to picnic. The Civic Center for concerts and the Warhawk museum for education and military history provide fun experiences for the whole family. There are several colleges in the area for family members that may be interested.  Idaho’s capitol, Boise, is 15 miles away and offers  excellent entertainment, recreation, and shopping. The regional Airport in Boise makes for efficient travel  if you must leave the area, but we suspect you will want to stay, play, and learn.
