Medical Students

St. Luke’s prioritizes opportunities for medical students based on established relationships with the University of Washington. You may request an exception placement through the St. Luke’s Learner Oversight Committee (LOC), which reviews requests on the first Thursday of every month.

The LOC bases their decisions on the following criteria: 

  • A current affiliation agreement must be in place between your university and St. Luke's 
  • Rotation is not one utilized for other learners from partner institutions
  • Rotation is in a difficult to recruit area or specialty
  • Learner requesting rotation must have a connection to Idaho with the potential to practice in our region
  • Extra consideration is taken for those rotations that open up the opportunity for a paired rotation; for example: supervising physician agrees to precept a resident and medical student, medical student to work primarily with resident)
  • Meet application deadlines when applicable to discipline 

Individuals requesting an exception will receive a decision letter within five working days of the LOC meeting.

Requirements for Approved Medical Student Exception Placement

  • All student educational experiences must be scheduled and confirmed through St. Luke's Student Services
  • Student must have a current Idaho Board of Medicine Medical Student License 
  • Application submission must be at least six months prior to rotation start date (submission of application does not guarantee placement)
  • Add potential preceptor names to your application; do not contact providers directly to schedule rotations
