Medical Specialty Programs

Graduate Studies

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.

University of Washington School of Medicine (WWAMI)

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.

University of Utah School of Medicine

A limited number of Idaho residents are admitted to the University of Utah School of Medicine under an agreement with the University of Utah. Idaho partially subsidizes the cost of tuition and fees for each Idaho student admitted to the program.

Washington–Idaho Regional Veterinary Medical Education Program

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.

Idaho Dental Education Program (IDEP)

The Idaho Dental Education Program provides financial support for a limited number of Idaho students admitted to the School of Dentistry at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska
