Providing Quality Medical Education Close to Home
Training Idaho’s doctors has been a priority for Idaho WWAMI since 1972. As Idaho’s publicly funded medical school, Idaho WWAMI has trained more than 740 physicians at the University of Idaho, in collaboration with the University of Washington
School of Medicine.
WWAMI General Scholarship Fund
The state of Idaho is facing a critical physician shortage. Idaho ranks 49/50 in number of physicians per capita. As the fastest-growing state in the U.S., Idaho needs more medical professionals immediately. Unfortunately, rural community doctors earn about $60,000 less than the national average. When coupled with a high debt load upon graduation, Idaho-trained physicians may choose to practice out of state. Your gift to the Idaho WWAMI scholarship fund reduces student debt and helps keep Idaho-trained doctors in our state.
