Idaho's Doctor Shortage Is Improving. Here's What's Helping
Three years ago, the state of Idaho faced a severe physician shortage placing them 49th in the nation for primary care doctors per capita.
In response, they implemented a ten-year plan to increase residencies for newly trained doctors in our state. Since then, Idaho has improved their standing by four places -- up from 49th to 45th when it comes to the number of primary care phyisicans.
Dr. Thomas Mohr is the dean and chief academic officer of the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine and joins Idaho Matters to talk more about what this improvement means.
