Last year, Occupational Therapists, Physicians and Surgeons, and Physical Therapists had the highest job vacancy rate across the state of Idaho. That means that across the state, there were over 600 job openings for these medical positions that were ready to hire.

All of these jobs require advanced education, and all of these jobs pay very high wages. All of these jobs offer the fulfillment of working with other people and helping them become well.

Idaho needs nurses, doctors, and therapists to care for our residents and ensure we have a healthy state.

Why can’t we fill these high paying job openings across the state?
