Idaho State University's Health Care Mission
Idaho State University is Idaho's health care university, as designated by the Idaho State Board of Education. There are nearly 30 separate health professional programs across the institution. This variety allows students to explore various professions and interact with current students and faculty.
The majority of the University's health profession programs are housed in the Kasiska College of Health Professions, covering all aspects of health care including: oral, physical, mental, rehabilitation and wellness. Our distinguished faculty maintains mutually beneficial partnerships with hospitals, clinics and specialized medical facilities throughout the state, region and nation to provide state-of-the-art training opportunities for our students. The nationwide shortage of nurses is being addressed by a fast-track nursing program offered by Idaho State University – Boise.
A mix of classroom and clinical studies across the nation ensures that graduates are prepared for licensing exams and positions in a wide range of health care fields. Our on-campus and statewide clinics provide students with hands-on training. These clinics include medicine, dentistry, dental hygiene, audiology, speech pathology, psychology, nursing, occupational and physical therapy, vestibular (balance), and wellness. No other university in Idaho can boast such an array of clinics that provide both teaching and community services.
