The Boise VA Medical Center is an acute care teaching hospital, providing a full range of patient care services, with state-of-the-art technology, as well as education and research. Comprehensive health care is provided through primary care, secondary, and long-term care in areas of medicine, surgery, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, oncology, dentistry, geriatrics, and extended care.
A competitive annual stipend is provided to residents as well as 13 paid holidays, annual leave, sick leave, health care benefits, personal office space, and free parking.
Additionally, residents can participate in Resident Forum which consists of weekly meetings with other Boise area residents. Through Resident Forum, residents have the opportunity to complete a Teaching Certificate, participate in BCPS review sessions, and solidify their post residency plans through CV reviews and panel discussions.
