Caldwell Residency Program
Welcome to the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho – Caldwell program. The program is a branch of the main Full Circle Health Program that is designed especially for broad-spectrum rural family medicine training. Here in Caldwell, our faculty is passionate about the training of Family Medicine Physicians. We are an unopposed program supported by the entire medical community of Caldwell and the surrounding areas. Therefore, we are able to provide an extremely broad training experience for our residents. Trainees essentially become a member of the medical group when they come to Caldwell as a resident, allowing for great professional and personal flexibility. This is very important because we recognize that balance is necessary to make well-rounded, fulfilled physicians.
The Caldwell Residency program began as a Rural Training Track (RTT) back in 1995 with one resident per year, graduating our first resident in 1998. In 2006, due to the program’s success, it was expanded to two residents per year (six residents’ total). In 2011, once again, the program expanded to three residents per year (nine residents’ total). All of our graduates are board certified family medicine physicians. Of our graduates to date, 88% are serving in rural areas.
Starting July 2023, the first year of training will begin in Caldwell with plans of going back to Boise for pediatrics/OB through rotations.
