Deadline extended for the Global Rural Health Fellowship in Alaska!


The UW SON’s Center for Global Health Nursing and the Alaskan Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) is recruiting experienced and newly graduated FNPs to work in Alaska for 12 month period beginning July 1, 2020. These candidates will become part of the second cohort of DNPs to participate in the prestigious UW Global and Rural Health Fellows Program. DNP-FNPs will have the opportunity to practice in Alaska at tribal clinics supported by the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) and become part of a cohort that includes recent UW SOM internal medicine and emergency medicine fellows. Subsequently, Fellows may extend for another year in Alaska or participate in a 3-month global health fellowship focusing on community health and/or applied research in Kenya, Peru, or Nepal.

Fellows will benefit from monthly skype-based seminar meetings with UW faculty, inter-professional education with their fellowship cohort, and faculty mentorship throughout the duration of their fellowship, including during the development of a community outreach/quality improvement activity. Fellows will participate in a one month, on-site global health course during the first year of the fellowship at UW (housing stipend provided).
