Elective Rotation: Rural Family Medicine in Alaska

Contact: Sara Martin, Kristina Randolph, clinic manager

Location: Juneau, Alaska

I spent a week at the Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) Clinic in Juneau, Alaska. I had previously spent six weeks with them at a more rural clinic in Haines, AK. Both experiences have been wonderful. It is a fantastic opportunity to see how a resource-constrained (in terms of weather, transportation) health care system operates across a very large geographic area. Additionally, I had great learning from the rotating specialists who fly down from Anchorage to do specialty clinics there as well as from the physical and occupational therapists there who specialize in OMT
