    Hello everyone!

    A recent Associated Press review revealed the 78 new medical residency positions promised by the proposed osteopathic medical school in Idaho do not yet exist. Furthermore, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education denied “sponsoring institution” status to Benefis Health Systems, the proposed employer of all 78 proposed residents.

    None of this should be interpreted as permanently damaging to the proposed DO school. It’s quite possible the ACGME could later approve these positions and the school could become a huge success for Idaho and its students. (We certainly hope that comes to fruition!) However, we do want to stress the extreme importance of fully researching target schools and ensuring one is making the most informed possible decision about the very significant investment a medical school education represents.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Hello everyone!

    The American Osteopathic Association’s Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation is now allowing the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine to accept applications for Fall 2018. The press release stated, “Affiliations with 32 hospitals, medical centers and health care organizations have been secured for ICOM students to start rotations in 2020. More than $5 million has been allocated for the development of residency programs in the first 10 years.”

    Best of luck with your applications!
