Idaho Has A Serious Doctor Shortage. This Program Aims To Help Fix That

Jul 22, 2019


Idaho ranks 49th in the country when it comes to the ratio of active physicians per 100,000 patients. 

And provider shortages are felt -- perhaps most strongly -- in Idaho's rural counties like Owyhee, Payette and Canyon. Now, a partnership between St. Luke's and Family Medicine Residency of Idaho is hoping to attract and retain more doctors to these rural counties.
