External Rotations
Bethel, Alaska

I always wondered if I would feel right at home
in a place that is more than 40-50 miles from the
nearest town. I found that working in a
community like this is an actual possibility for

Sage Memorial Hospital Ganado, AZ
So many things I had learned over the last 3
