About Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation

YKHC is the only bush site to require board certification. This is a measure of the quality of medical providers the corporation employs. "It allows the medical staff credentialling office to have another objective measure of the quality of the providers that we employ," Hodges said. "And it helps weed out the providers who have not achieved academic excellence in training." All physicians have to have four years of undergraduate education, four years of medical school and an additional 3-7 years of residency training beyond that. Board certification is a further standard of excellence that encompasses both clinical knowledge and dedication to the board's specialty. The requirements for continuing education, for example, are much higher than just for state licensure.
