A word with Robert Hasty of ICOM, Idaho’s proposed medical school

Robert Hasty is a physician and administrator who was hired by investors last year to help create Idaho’s first medical school.

Hasty, 43, and an internist, worked as a hospitalist in Fort Myers, Fla., and moved to teach at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale before moving to Campbell University, a Baptist university in North Carolina that started an osteopathic medical school in 2013. He eventually became associate dean for post-graduate affairs, in charge of Campbell’s medical residency programs, before being hired to the Idaho job last fall. He headed west in February to launch the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine, or ICOM.
