Pediatrics Residency of Idaho

Pediatrics Residency of Idaho (PRI) will offer excellent clinical training with high patient volumes in all clinical areas; our second class of residents will start in July 2024.  The vision of our program is to produce outstanding pediatrician leaders for their communities and to train outstanding broad spectrum pediatrics physicians to work in any setting. This work includes serving under-served and rural areas as well as our vulnerable populations of Idaho with high quality, affordable care provided in a collaborative work environment.  We are the first pediatrics residency to be based out of a Federally Qualified Health Center, rather than a medical school, university, or hospital. This difference allows us to be more completely focused on community-based residency training and development of leadership and advocacy skills to use in your future community and practice.

Pediatrics Interest Group Meeting Opportunity

We would love to welcome all medical students interested in pediatrics to join us virtually for our Pediatrics Interest Group meetings hosted by Pediatrics Residency of Idaho faculty.  We spend time during these sessions meeting each other, teaching about a pediatrics “hot topic” for about 20 minutes, providing information about pediatrics as a career choice, answering questions about pediatrics residency selection and application strategies, and providing information about our pediatric residency if desired.  We started hosting these in January 2022, and have really enjoyed the interactions and learning and relationships that have resulted.  We hope that you will join us for future meetings as your schedule allows.  

Please contact Rhonda Prudhomme (Residency Coordinator) at to obtain Zoom meeting information for these sessions.  

Our upcoming Pediatrics Interest Group meetings are scheduled for 6:00 – 7:30 pm MST on:

  • April 3, 2024
  • May 13, 2024
  • July 8, 2024
  • August 12, 2024

Clinic Locations

ur brand new Boise pediatrics clinic delivers high-quality health care to newborns, children, and young adults (up to 18 years old) with a focus on promoting healthy lifestyles and identifying illness early to help prevent more serious illness later on. The novel, centralized design of our clinic provides enhanced team communication and efficiency.  Our clinic offers interpretation services for virtually every language.  We also offer in-house a community health worker, and licensed clinical social worker support for counseling, crisis management, case management, and many other services. Along with these benefits, our clinic also provides affordable healthcare options for children and teens who might not otherwise be able to access care. As a Federally Qualified Health Center, we offer a more affordable sliding scale fee scheduled for the uninsured.  Additionally, we have a conference / teaching center in our clinic for resident and student education, and a large resident room set aside so that our residents have a “home” within their clinic.

This clinic does not serve adults; adult family members who need health care services are encouraged to make an appointment at our other Full Circle Health clinics nearby.
