Alaska Family Medicine Residency

Residency opportunities in Alaska are quite competitive.  They offer residents a chance to experience medical practice in both urban and rural settings.  However, in Alaska rural is truly rural.  Many communities can only be reached by air or water.  Alaska has the only US state capital that cannot be reached by road.

The Alaska Family Medicine Residency is a member of the WWAMI Network of Family Medicine Residencies.  Its full three-year program is based in Anchorage and includes a six-week rotation at a rural site -- Bethel or Dillingham.

  • General Surgery/Endoscopy
