Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine and Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center (EIRMC) have partnered to create a new internal medicine residency program. ICOM has granted the medical center $500,000 for the residency program.
Over the next three years, ICOM will also help fund three more residency programs at EIRMC, one of which will be in family medicine. This partnership will create the largest cohort of residents in the state.
The internal medicine program will accommodate 10 new residents yearly and started July 1.
With ICOM’s inaugural class of medical students matriculating this year, the school’s commitment to supporting graduate medical education will have a lasting impact in Idaho, according to Robert Hasty, DO, ICOM’s founding dean and chief academic officer.
