Before Your Clerkship

Students are required to submit fingerprints for the mandatory State of Alaska Background Check. The State now insists that we require the students have fingerprint cards made well in advance and mail/FEDEX them to the ABC office in Anchorage. Then when the State Application is input on-line, the prints are in the ABC office *and* the processing/applications fees have been paid...the state will process the student (estimated five days but sometimes very much longer) and then the student receives *provisional permission* to do the clinical rotation.

Fairbanks Memorial Hospital will continue to pay the processing and application fees but students will have to pay for the FEDEX/UPS delivery.
