Application Process and Selection Criteria

The Consortium will offer 10 full-time positions during the internship year, Norton Sound Health Corporation will have 4 intern slots, 4 slots at Providence Alaska Family Medicine Residency, Alaska Psychiatric Institute (Inactive), and 2 slots at the Aleutian Pribilof Island Association. 

Applicants may apply to as many or as few training sites within AK-PIC as they choose.  Applicants designate the training sites by selecting the appropriate Match Number when submitting the application.  Please note that the Alaska Psychiatric Institute has two tracks, and applicants may choose to apply to one or both tracks.   Finally, only one complete application is required for consideration to any of the sites in the Consortium. 

All application materials must be received by the deadline in order to be considered. If applicants are invited to interview, they will be notified by email. At that time, they will also be informed of the sites for which they have been selected to interview. AK-PIC will conduct virtual interviews. Interview dates are typically the 3rd week of January. For those applicants who are selected to interview for one site, the interviews will be conducted at that specific site.

In addition to the preferences noted above, AK-PIC takes into consideration the potential commitment or interest of any prospective intern to remain in Alaska following internship. Developing a strong behavioral health workforce is an important consideration for the state, and an interest in remaining in Alaska to join the workforce will be considered a benefit in a potential intern.

Questions regarding the application or interview process may be directed to either of AK-PIC’s Training Co-Directors, Dr. Seth Green: sethg@apiai.org or Dr. Sarah Dewane: Sarah.Dewane@providence.org
