Community Partnerships

CommunityPartnershipsWorking in partnership with Alaska school districts, colleges, universities and agencies,
Providence has created exploration opportunities in nursing; medicine; radiology; pathology; physical, occupational and speech therapy; respiratory therapy; dietetics; pharmacy; health information services; genetic counseling; and social work. The Community Partnerships Program serves a diverse population of individuals, from K-12 to post-secondary students, as well as adult learners looking for a career change.  Individuals who participate in this program oftentimes go on to pursue careers in health care.
