Due to the overwhelming surge in COVID-19 cases and the strain it has placed on health care capacity in the communities we serve, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare has activated crisis standards of care statewide. We are open and available to see patients, but you may experience delays at our ERs, hospitals, and clinics. We appreciate your patience. Access more info on COVID testing, vaccination, visitor policy, hospitalization data, and FAQs.

High School Juniors or Seniors Not Enrolled in an Allied Health Program

  • St. Luke’s works to facilitate educational interview opportunities for high school juniors or seniors that are not enrolled in an allied health program. Interviews with a healthcare professional provide an educational opportunity to gain an understanding of a profession and the educational preparation necessary. 
  • Students are not allowed to observe in patient care areas or participate in direct patient interventions. 
  • If no patients are present, they may receive a tour of a treatment area for an explanation of equipment and diagnosis served at the site to enhance their entry-level knowledge.
