Medical Specialty Programs
In some specialized fields of study, Idaho has too few students to warrant the establishment of expensive programs. In order to provide Idahoans a full range of educational programs at a reasonable cost, the state has established programs in cooperation with other states in the areas of medicine, veterinary medicine, and dentistry.
The Washington-Wyoming-Alaska-Montana-Idaho (WWAMI) Regional Medical Education Program allows a limited number of Idaho students the opportunity to study medicine using the combined resources of the University of Idaho and the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle.
The Washington–Idaho Regional Veterinary Medical Education Program (formerly WOI) allows a limited number of Idaho students the opportunity to study for a career in veterinary medicine using the combined resources of the University of Idaho College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Animal and Veterinary Science Department / Caine Veterinary Teaching Center–Caldwell, ID, and Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine–Pullman, WA. Idaho partially subsidizes the cost of fees and tuition for each Idaho student admitted to this program.
