Site Details: 

The Family Medicine Residency of Idaho is made up of 42 residents, and over 20 faculty physicians, including a psychologist and a variety of support staff all devoted to our mission of serving the underserved and medical training. As a student here you will spend the majority of your time in clinic working closely with our faculty and senior residents to solidify and strengthen your clinical skills. You will be involved in as many out-patient procedures as possible, including specialty clinics which may include sports medicine, plastics clinic, vasectomy clinic, etc. Students round with our family medicine service and with our obstetrics team each for one week. Given adequate advance notice (minimum of 4 weeks), a one-week rural experience can be arranged. Students are expected to participate in several educational didactic and training sessions. There are many excellent recreational opportunities in the Boise area including skiing, fishing, kayaking, bicycling, golf, and tennis.

Dr. Kimberly Stutzman, the site director, with Dr. Elizabeth Rulon, MD, assistant site director, and Kaye Holman, site Coordinator, are responsible for the student coordination and handle the daily student rotation: please call either of them prior to your rotation to make preliminary arrangements. At least one faculty member or senior resident will always supervise the student. Either Dr. Stutzman or Dr. Rulon and Ms. Holman are your resource for any concerns you may have during the rotation.
