Clearinghouse for Clinical Rotations

Yukon/Kuskokwim AHEC

The Yukon Kuskokwim AHEC is housed in Bethel, Alaska. Bethel is the hub to 50 surrounding villages which are home to Yup’ik,  Cup’ik and Athabascan people. The YK Delta is a vast and beautiful region in Alaska that practices subsistence based lifestyle with fishing, hunting and gathering. Temperatures and weather conditions vary, so it is always best to be prepared with rain and cold weather gear. Travel to our communities is mainly by air or river travel.

Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corporation (YKHC) is the principal healthcare organization serving the YK Delta. YKHC hosts clinical rotations at the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta Regional Hospital (YKDRH). The hosting departments are: Dental, Optometry, Pharmacy, Medical, Lab, Diagnostic Imaging, Environmental Health and Physical Therapy. Rotation placements are negotiated between the sponsoring department and the school the student is attending.  International students are not considered for placement at our hospital.

YK AHEC also offers job shadows and tours to interested students. For more information contact Susan Jones at (907)543-6075 or by email at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
