About Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine
The Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine, located in Meridian, opened its doors in July of 2018. As the first and only medical school in the state of Idaho, prior to ICOM’s establishment, Idaho was the most populous state in the U.S. without a medical school of its own. The mission of ICOM — a private, for-profit school — is to train osteopathic physicians prepared for caring for persons in Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and beyond.
ICOM matriculated its inaugural class of 162 students in August of 2018. This class is composed of graduates from 97 U.S. colleges and universities, with above-average composite medical board (MCAT) scores, and highly competitive undergraduate grade point averages. These students originate from 29 states, with approximately one-third coming from Idaho and the ICOM target five-state region.
ICOM’s students of osteopathic medicine are the future of the profession and will contribute to the well-being of millions of patients across the nation. They are motivated by the highest calling to serve, and have committed to excellence in public health in service to our patients. It is essential to know that ICOM strives to improve the... health of the American public, and to provide future physicians with the skills and training to cultivate the essential expertise to serve patients across the nation.
