Rural Immersion Institute of the North (RIIN)
by Green & Gold News |
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. Participants are then paired with healthcare professionals from around the state to
obtain hands-on experience in rural Alaska communities. The program ends back in Anchorage,
where students present their experiences and lessons learned.
RIIN is a Rural Alaskan "Edventure" for undergraduate & graduate healthcare students or professionals interested in rural health practice. All disciplines are welcome.
