Workforce and medical education have become front and center in many of today's health care conversations in Idaho. The Idaho legislature recently directed the State Board of Education to commission a study focusing on student demand for medical education and the state's needs for physicians. The findings showed access to physicians and medical education is extremely limited in Idaho, when contrasted with other comparable states as well as the nation as a whole.
