Carlie Arbaugh, a Stanford general surgery resident, recently shared her experience serving indigenous Alaskan populations while working a rotation at Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage, Alaska. The rotation was supported by the Stanford Medicine Global Scholars (Independent Away) program.
“This opportunity reaffirmed for me that I love working in the community and in particular working with underserved populations,” she said. “I definitely still have a long way to go to complete my training, but this experience was reassuring for me that my knowledge and skill set are growing and can be applied towards the passions and goals I have.”
