The Idaho Legislature currently reserves 30 seats in the University of Washington School of Medicine (UWSOM) for its residents. Five of the seats are for the TRUST program. Prospective medical students must apply for admission through the University of Washington School of Medicine first, designating Idaho as their state of residence. As part of the application review, applicants will be directed to submit their residency certification worksheet. The residency worksheet should NOT be submitted prior to contact from University of Washington. Once your application is reviewed you will receive instructions to certify your residency.

Idaho students applying to both WWAMI and University of Utah School of Medicine need only one Idaho residency certificate. The University of Idaho will provide a copy of your residency certification to Idaho State University for verification for your University of Utah application. Students only need to submit a worksheet to certify residency through one institution.

The Idaho Residency laws and the Medical Residency Form can be found at the University of Idaho's Registrar's website.
