Abstract
The University of Alaska (UA) system convened a meeting of educators from disciplines spanning the behavioral health field to discuss how they can most effectively address workforce shortages, especially in rural areas. Despite a number of productive efforts in the UA system to develop an effective workforce that is trained in rural behavioral health, educators in Alaska see that more work needs to be done and are committed to formalizing workforce development activities that ensure the needs of Alaskans are met. In order to create a clear path toward achieving the development of an adequate and effective behavioral health workforce, UA educators, in collaboration with the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) Mental Health Program, have been researching relevant issues facing Alaska. What follows is a summary of relevant concerns and data in several areas, including 1) the national context of rural behavioral health shortages, 2) Alaska workforce data, 3) occupational and population projections in Alaska, 4) trends in UA behavioral health programs regarding enrollment and degrees awarded, and 5) recommendations for developing the behavioral health workforce.

Abstract
Because Alaska does not have its own medical school, it has become part of WAMI (Washington, Alaska, Montana, Idaho), an educational agreement with the University of Washington School of Medicine (UWSM). Each year, 10 Alaskans are accepted into the entering class of UWSM and spend their first year at the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA). UWSM third- and fourth-year medical students can obtain some of their clinical experience in Alaska. To meet the needs of Alaska, students are chosen based on academic and personal records, as well as the likelihood of their returning to Alaska for practice. To this end, over the last seven years 30% of accepted students have come from rural communities and 10% are Alaska Natives. The curriculum for the first year includes several sessions dedicated to Alaska health problems, cross-cultural issues, and Alaska's unique rural health care delivery system. Students do two preceptorships--one with a private primary care physician and one with a physician at the Alaska Native Medical Center. Additionally, students have the option to spend a week at a rural site to learn about the community's health care system. An Alaska track is being developed whereby an Alaskan UWSM student can do most of the third year in state via clerkships in family medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, psychiatry, internal medicine, and pediatrics. All UWSM students at the end of their first year can elect to participate for one month in the R/UOP (Rural/Underserved Opportunities Program), which includes several Alaska sites. The overall goals of these approaches are to educate UWSM students, especially Alaskans, about the state's health needs and health care system and to encourage UWSM graduates to practice in the state.
