What is the best thing about teaching at AKFMR?

The AKFMR is a mission-driven program with energetic, thoughtful, and passionate faculty and residents. I am grateful to be surrounded by such amazing people. No better place to grow professionally and personally!

How did you end up in Alaska?

I lived here for a year during medical school and new I would come back. And now that I’m back, I’ll never leave – there’s no other place like it!
