The University of Washington School of Medicine Department of Internal Medicine sponsors the Boise Internal Medicine Residency. Training here provides a unique opportunity for growth and development in a close-knit, collaborative setting that is highly tailored to individual interests. We offer both preliminary and categorical training for medical school graduates interested in office-based internal medicine, hospital medicine, or further subspecialty training. Our graduates have also gone on to rewarding careers in academic disciplines.
We are known for academic rigor and success in outpatient primary care and hospital medicine with a high priority placed on autonomy. We have also trained physicians for competitive fellowship programs in various specialties. This unique combination is made possible by talented local faculty, a nationally recognized VA hospital, two community hospital regional referral centers, a network of hand-picked community and rural training opportunities, and a strong relationship with the University of Washington.
Reflecting these high standards, we were recently selected as one of the five nationwide VA Centers of Excellence for Primary Care Education, a $5M grant over five years to improve interdisciplinary training in a "medical home" model (read more). We are also one of only two hospitals in Idaho to be named a "Top Performer" in key quality measures for 2010 and 2012 by the Joint Commission.
