Clearinghouse for Clinical Rotations


Due to shifts in federal AHEC funding initiatives, the Alaska AHEC Program Office and its five regional AHEC centers will be limiting financial support to students who are attending Alaska programs. Each Alaska AHEC Center has a limited amount of funding available to help support health professional students participating in rotations in rural Alaska or with underserved populations in urban settings.  Funding is capped at $800/student for rotations longer than 3 weeks and $600/student for rotations 3 weeks or less in length.  Funding is generally limited to transportation to/from rotation site and housing on site during the rotation. Students are eligible for travel funding once per grant year (September 1st through August 31st).

We support various clinical rotation student types.  The most common types of rotations are listed below, but we encourage other types of health professional students to contact us as well:

  4th year medical students
  allied health students
  dental students
  medical residents
  nurse practitioners
  nursing students
  pharmacy interns
  physician assistants

If you have already secured a placement within Alaska and are interested in receiving support for your travel to the community and/or housing, please contact one of the Clinical Rotation Coordinators listed below. (Note: If you are unsure of which AHEC region your community falls within, please contact Janice Troyer in the Alaska AHEC Program office.)

NOTE: September 2017- August 2018 will be the final year the Alaska AHEC Program provides support services for clinical rotation students. The Alaska AHEC will be developing the AHEC Scholars Program, a longitudinal, interdisciplinary program which will launch in Fall 2018. Following the launch, all AHEC program funding will be allocated specifically to AHEC Scholars.
