The Rural Immersion Institute of the North (RIIN) introduces healthcare students to the realities of providing care in rural Alaska. Students spend the beginning of the program in Anchorage, learning about Alaskan culture and meeting with healthcare professionals to hear about their experiences. The middle days are spent job-shadowing healthcare professionals in a rural community somewhere in the state. The program ends back in Anchorage, where students present their experiences and lessons learned.
AHEC is persuring an annual partnership with Carroll University to fill spots in this program. At this time only Carroll University students are eligible to participate.
