Clearinghouse for Clinical Rotations

Welcome to the Alaska AHEC

The Alaska Area Health Education Center (Alaska AHEC) provides experiences for students in health professions by placing them with our rural or underserved populations. This website serves as a clearinghouse for those interested in obtaining such a rotation. Due to upcoming changes in the AHEC program, we will be limiting our funding support to students who live in Alaska.

September 2017- August 2018 will be the final year the Alaska AHEC Program provides support services for clinical rotation students, and those placements will be extremely limited. Due to shifts in federal funding initiatives, 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.
The AHEC Scholars program will consist of the following elements:
• Clinical activities
• Didactic Activities
• Community-based training
• Rural Track
• Underserved Track

The AHEC Program is actively seeking faculty and student input in development of the program during our planning year. If you are interested in being part of this process or in becoming an AHEC Scholar in the future, please contact AHEC Director, Gloria Burnett at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

We encourage you to visit the Frequently Asked Questions page before contacting us. An application for a rotation placement is available for download on the Application page. Please note, as of September 2017, it is best to contact the Alaska AHEC Program Office or regional AHEC Center BEFORE spending time filling out an application, since we are placing so few students this last year.
