Global Rural Health Fellowship Program for FNPs- 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 a 12-24 month period beginning July 1, 2022.  FNPs will have the opportunity to practice in Alaska supported by the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC). They become part of a cohort that includes recent UW School of Medicine internal medicine and emergency medicine fellows. Subsequently, selected Fellows may extend  in Alaska or participate in a 3-month global health fellowship focusing on community health and/or applied research abroad.

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).

To Apply:

Send application, updated CV, two letters of recommendation (1 faculty & 1 clinical supervisor) and personal statement explaining your interest in the fellowship and relevant experiences that prepared you for rural practice to Program Manager, Casey Thomson, at
