Kootenai Health welcomes students from a variety of health professions. The process outlined below was developed for incoming licensed independent practitioner students. These steps ensure the treatment given by students during their placement upholds Kootenai’s strict safety standards.
Placement can be obtained by contacting a local physician office directly.
Any student engaging in rotations or clerkships must have a current affiliation agreement on file with Kootenai Health. This agreement outlines the parameters of the clinical experience, expected outcomes, as well as the individual responsibilities of each party.
To obtain a Kootenai affiliation agreement for a specific collegiate program, contact Kootenai Health’s Medical Staff Services department at (208) 625-5080.
A confirmation email will be sent to the student regarding their eligibility to participate in rotations once the Affiliation Agreement has been finalized. Instructions for scheduling an orientation appointment and obtaining a medical badge will also be included in the email.
