Phalyn Butler: Alaska is awesome!


This rotation was such an awesome adventure, and aside from getting a great experience in pain treatment modalities and pain medications, the Cross family is great at making the students feel at home in Fairbanks. There are so many opportunities to explore Fairbanks and Alaska. I was able to go river rafting in Denali, fishing and camping on the Kenai Peninsula, and floating down the Chena River through Fairbanks. I also got to do some uniquely Fairbanks things, including visiting Pioneer Park for the Fourth of July and riding the award winning IPCA float in the Golden Days Parade! If anyone is interested in pain management and wants an amazing adventure rotation I would highly suggest this one. Housing is provided at the clinic, which is a huge help for students traveling to this rotation, and the set-up is pretty great, with all the things you would need to get by. The staff is very knowledgeable and great to work with, and everyone is really amazing at making you feel welcome. I loved my time in Fairbanks, and wish I had more time there to adventure and experience Alaska. I can’t wait to go back!
