Clearinghouse for Clinical Rotations

Southeast AHEC

Southeast Alaska has very temperate weather with many opportunities for outdoor sports.  Clinical Rotations for medical students, mid-levels and resident doctors are arranged, primarily, in rural and underserved areas.  Most small clinics in the Sitka, Ketchikan, Wrangell and Petersburg areas are geared toward a 4 or 8 week rotation.  Students should make travel and housing arrangements several months in advance.  Transportation to some of the smaller clinics may require travel by bush plane or small boat.  Please be mindful of the Frontier nature of our transportation system for regional travel.  Because these methods of travel are highly dependent on the weather, be ready for delays “due to weather”.

The Southeast AHEC is hosted by PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center. Students interested in clinical rotations for this region should contact Carlen Williams. She can be reached at 907-228-8455 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
