Find Your Indigenous Community

Each Indigenous student’s journey is an individual one. We respect differences while building a supportive environment where all can thrive. We plan gatherings, bring in distinguished Native health professionals for lectures, place students in clinical rotations in rural areas and facilitate participation in research.

Improving Indigenous Health

Better care leads to better health for Native communities. Supporting Native students on their academic journey is how we build the Indigenous health care workforce.

We also tackle the challenges of American Indian and Alaska Native health and care by building interconnected relationships within tribal communities. We share our medical expertise while honoring Native knowledge.
