Clearinghouse for Clinical Rotations

Introduction to Alaska and Our Healthcare System

Alaska is a land rich in history, geography and diverse cultures. As a potential member of our rural health workforce, we urge you to prepare for your clinical or rural experience by reviewing the Cultural Attunement modules below, especially the overview and the region where you will be staying. You will explore our state through a series of interviews conducted with elders and health professionals while learning about our unique Alaskan cultures and multifaceted healthcare system.
