Welcome from Boise!
We are glad that you are interested in our program and potentially joining us in beautiful Boise, Idaho. Whether it’s the engaging staff, residents or faculty, or easily accessible outdoors we are sure you will find Boise a wonderful place to call home and build a rewarding career.
Our residency prides itself on the diverse range of faculty, training sites and experiences that help create the future generation of Boise Psychiatrists. As Psychiatry trainees, we work closely with other mental health professionals including therapists, social workers and pharmacists. Residents have the opportunity to work at the State Hospital, the VA and several community hospitals to hone their skills in psychiatry and medicine. Our residents also have the opportunity to take night and weekend day call for the VA.
Outside of residency, you will have access to great outdoor activities and a lively metropolitan city. Whether it’s rafting down the Boise River, grabbing a nice meal downtown, biking the green belt or skiing in the mountains, you will never run out fun things to do in your off time. Our residency aims to focus on creating well rounded physicians which means taking care of wellness too! We strive to have multiple social events as a program throughout the year to encourage residency team building and wellness.
Welcome to our site. We are still working on updating the content now that we are a full four-year residency. Please use the contact feature to reach out to us if you have specific questions. We hope you join us in continuing to make the University of Washington Boise Psychiatry Residency an amazing experience!
We look forward to seeing you in Boise!
