Interior Women's Health-OB GYN 687
Welcome to Fairbanks, Alaska and the Interior Women's Clinic! IWH looks forward to making your OB/GYN rotation an interesting and varied educational clerkship. Our community offers diversity and a variety of cultural opportunities. To learn more about our beautiful state, please visit www.explorefairbanks.com.
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.
Students are provided a car for this rotation, and will be picked up from the airport upon arrival for their clerkship.
During your six-week rotation, you will be expected to accompany your preceptor to surgery and participate in deliveries. You will rotate shadowing one of our board certified obstetricians/gynecologists. You will also be expected to make a weekly presentation to your preceptors and other OB/GYN clinical staff.
Fairbanks Memorial Hospital is the only hospital in Fairbanks and is located at 1650 Cowles St. For student convenience, there is a lounge and medical library at the hospital.
A pager will be provided to OB/GYN students for use during their rotation.
