ICOM faculty and students pursue innovative research in basic science, medical education, and underserved and rural medicine.

The research mission at the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine is two-fold: to provide student doctors the necessary tools to become competent physicians in evaluating and producing medical research and to allow faculty and students to advance medicine and biomedical scholarship in Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and beyond.

Strategies and initiatives to achieve this mission are included in the Research Strategic Plan.
