Does AHEC help pay for clinical rotations or tuition?

For some traveling clinical rotations students, limited financial support is available for housing and transportation to the clinical site. Our funding is aimed at supporting students who are most likely to provide primary care or related services in rural, underserved locations after graduation.

Based on the availability of funding, SCAHEC has available up to $600 in travel assistance for individual students on rotations three weeks or less in duration, $800 in travel assistance for individual students on rotations more than three weeks in duration.   

SCAHEC works closely with the Fourth year Medical Student Sub-Internship Opportunities with the Alaska Family Medicine Residency Program in Anchorage.
