Welcome from the Founding Dean & Chief Academic Officer

On behalf of the ICOM family, I welcome you to the ICOM community. ICOM is designed to be the medical school of the future. Everything from our facilities, to our curriculum, and to our team, has been designed for this and we will train incredibly caring and competent physicians.

Idaho currently ranks 50th in terms of primary care physicians per capita and 49th in terms of overall physicians per capita and is the epicenter of the region of the nation with tremendous physician needs. ICOM is Idaho’s first medical school and we will improve the healthcare in the region for generations to come.

Our vision is to be the best medical school in the nation in support of our mission.  We have an incredible team with strong values and incredible passion about our mission. To advance our vision, we need the collaboration, engagement, and support of the ICOM community. I ask that you join us as we advance the mission of a medical school like no other - ICOM!
