Still cold, but an amazing four weeks. I highly recommend rotating at the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage! Clinical rotation: You will be given a choice of (1) outpatient clinic, (2) inpatient medicine, or (3) ICU. You can pick 2 of 3 if you want to mix/match. I chose a mix of outpatient clinic […]

It was a great experience and strongly encourage anyone interested to do it. The rotation had been primarily a hospitalist rotation, though now, they have opened opportunities for more critical […]
My name is Adam Corson and I was an R3 when I did my WWAMI month at Alaska Native Medical Center in 5/09. This is a hospitalist rotation.
