Currently, 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.
Due to the on-going pandemic, we are unable to offer RIIN for summer 2021. We are currently evaluating the future of RIIN. If you are interested in participating in the future, please complete this short form.
