About Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine
The Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine (ICOM) matriculated its inaugural class in August of 2018. This class of 2022 is composed of graduates from 97 U.S. colleges and universities, with above average composite medical board (MCAT) scores and highly competitive undergraduate grade point averages. These students originate from 29 states with approximately one-third coming from Idaho and the ICOM target 5-state region including Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming. ICOM was formed to address the current and growing shortage of physicians in the Mountain West and beyond. Although Idaho is among the most rapidly growing areas of the country, the state ranks 49th in physicians per capita. Approximately 30 percent of all actively practicing physicians in the U.S. are over 60 years of age. This cohort accentuates concerns about a wave of impending retirements amidst a much smaller influx of newly trained physicians. Over half of Idaho hospitals are Critical Access Hospitals (CAH). These CAH’s and their medical provider base must be maintained to assure access to health care for those they serve. The availability of primary care providers in these areas is a key public pol...icy concern.Before ICOM was established, Idaho was the most populous state without a medical school of its own. ICOM’s mission is to train competent and caring physicians prepared to serve persons in Idaho, Montana, North and South Dakota, Wyoming, and beyond with an emphasis on rural, underserved areas within this five state region. ICOM was conceived and established to be of sufficient size to attract a well-qualified faculty and student body as well as to have the technical and other resources necessary to effectively train physicians for 21st century medicine.
