The Family Medicine Residency of Idaho (FMRI) is made up of 48 residents, and over 20 faculty physicians, including a psychiatrist, two psychologists 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, procedure 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. We look forward to helping you have an excellent patient-centered, broad-scope clerkship.
Dr. Kimberly Stutzman, MD, the associate director of education at FMRI, Dr. Timothy DeBlieck, MD, 3rd year site director, and Kaye Nelson, site Coordinator, are responsible for the student coordination and handle the daily student rotation: please contact any of them prior to your rotation to make preliminary arrangements. At least one faculty member or senior resident will always supervise the student. Dr. DeBlieck and Mrs. Nelson are your resource for any concerns you may have during the rotation.
