The Alaska Area Health Education Center (Alaska AHEC) provides experiences for students in health professions by placing them in rural or underserved populations. Interested in a clinical rotation or being a preceptor in Southeast Alaska, contact us!
Rural Immersion Institute of the North (RIIN)
RIIN is designed for undergraduate juniors, seniors, gap year students and professionals returning to graduate school in the full spectrum of pre-professional health careers. Students spend three weeks in Alaska, including ten days in rural areas job-shadowing health care professionals. The rest of the time is spent in Anchorage.
Alaska AHEC maintains a robust long-term tracking system on students funded for clinical rotations.
