Kootenai Clinic

Family Medicine Coeur d'Alene Residency

Kootenai Clinic Family Medicine Residency of Coeur d’Alene Idaho is a three-year residency program affiliated with the University of Washington Family Medicine Residency Network. After nearly four years of development and following the ACGME accreditation process we welcomed our inaugural class of six residents in 2013.

An unopposed program, Kootenai is the only family medicine residency is North Idaho and among only a handful of residencies in all of Idaho. While cultivating professional growth in residency is time consuming, we’re fortunate to call Coeur d’Alene home, for the time outside of work where we enjoy our robust community as well as the mountains and lakes that surround us.

As we continue to grow and develop we are looking for thoughtful, innovative, and community minded people who are interested in training to be competent, compassionate, full-spectrum family medicine providers. With a focus on training physicians for future practice in rural family medicine we hope graduates of our program will leave their mark on North Idaho and surrounding communities.
