Raven's Quest Summer Institute

Raven's Quest Summer Institute was part of a federally funded Health Careers Opportunity Program (HCOP) grant awarded to the Alaska Center for Rural Health at the University of Alaska Anchorage by HRSA's Bureau of Health Professions. The Raven's Quest program ran for four summers beginning in 2003 and ending in August 2006. The purpose of Raven's Quest Summer Institute was to explore career opportunities in the behavioral health field within Alaska, gain on-the-job experiences with behavioral health professionals in the field, increase knowledge of cultural diversity and sensitivity issues and their impact in the behavioral health field and learn about behavioral health degree programs at the University of Alaska. Students who participated in the program came from across Alaska. The exploratory program included classroom activities, guest speakers, special workshops and job shadowing.

Federal funds for HCOP programs across the country were lost beginning September 2006. As a result the Raven's Quest Summer Institute program will no longer take place unless future funding is acquired. If you need more information about the program, please contact the former Program Manager, Janice Troyer, at anjkt1@uaa.alaska.edu or (907) 786-6592.
