Proposed Idaho med school goes before accreditation board again

That could postpone other projects, including a proposed $3 million expansion to Idaho State University’s anatomy and physiology laboratory that the new school plans to fund and use.

Dr. Robert Hasty, dean of the proposed Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine, met with the Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation in Washington, D.C., on Friday. The school can’t legally start construction until it wins pre-accreditation status.

“I am not sure as to when the commissioners will officially respond, but we, of course, are hoping it is sooner than later as we are excited to break ground,” Hasty said in an email Saturday.

He said the school still plans to start work in April or May and open its doors to students in fall 2018. Full story.
