The Alaska Family Medicine Residency (AKFMR) offers a four-week inpatient rotation on our Family Medicine Service (FMS) at Providence Alaska Medical Center. Fourth-year medical students serve as an integral member of our interdisciplinary care team consisting of physicians, consultants, pharmacist, social workers, and case managers.
Students will deepen their medical knowledge, professionalism, autonomy, and empathy while performing assessments of patients for admission, daily rounding, consultation, and discharges. Students will be guided while developing diagnostic and treatment plans and manage an average of two to three patients while on the service. Students will participate in AKFMR didactics, Grand Rounds, and weekly SIMS cases with our animatronic mannequin and medical suite.
There are additional learning opportunities to tailor the experience, including outpatient medicine, inpatient obstetrics, and community medicine.
AKFMR is now accepting applications for the 2020-2021 Sub-Internship rotation. Deadline to submit application is February 2nd, 2020, 11:59PM AKST. Applications submitted by deadline date will be reviewed and notified no later than February 14th, 2020. Any application received after the deadline date will be defaulted to the waiting list. AKFMR encourages all students to apply as early as possible due to limited rotation slots.
