The Idaho Advanced Clinician Track provides residency training and practical experience in a variety of clinical settings. Idaho is one of five states included in the WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho) Program developed by the University of Washington to bring advanced medical training into underserved and largely rural areas. These Intermountain west states are known for the beauty of their outdoor surroundings and the individualistic, laid back attitudes of their communities. Boise, Idaho is a thriving community that has grown rapidly over the past several decades and accordingly increased the need for specialty medical services, particularly psychiatry.
A major focus of our program is to teach psychiatrists how to become expert consultants for other physicians and healthcare providers. This clinician track prepares the next generation of psychiatrists to effectively diagnose and compassionately treat patients in multiple medical and community settings.
