Students provide health to underserved Alaskans and receive mentorship through Alaska's WWAMI program.
The WWAMI School of Medical Education is a collaboration among 6 universities in five northwestern states (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho) and the University of Washington School of Medicine. The University of Washington School of Medicine ranked as #1 in the US for Primary Care Education in 2022 by US News & World Report.
Here at UAA, WWAMI is proud to offer both the Doctor of Medicine program in partnership with the University of Washington, as well as a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Pre-Medical Studies to prepare students for medical school.
Alaska WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho) School of Medical Education students from UAA spent a rainy day in Girdwood learning to treat injuries and save lives in the backcountry from the Alyeska Resort Ski Patrol.
Researchers at UAA are active in medical studies related to health disparities, cancer and community engagement. Come back soon to learn more about WWAMI research.
This annual event, co-hosted by Alaska WWAMI and the UAA College of Health, provides information to anyone interested in pursuing careers in healthcare including medicine. High school students, undergraduates, and college graduates are invited to attend.
The UW School of Medicine's Service Learning program provides students with opportunities to hone their skills while addressing the health needs of our underserved communities.
WWAMI offers six Pathways giving students the opportunity to pursue a particular interest and develop knowledge and skills specifically tailored to working with specific communities domestically and abroad.
