The ANTHC Training and Development department offers a variety of professional development and training opportunities for ANTHC staff and Tribal health partners.
The ANTHC book club is open to ALL ANTHC and THO employees. Anyone can participate and it is not a requirement that you have read or finished the book, unless you are seeking CE or CME credits or are in one of the other leadership programs. Held monthly, September to April, from 12:00 pm to 1:00pm, book club discussions coincide with ANTHCs leadership development programs, LEAD and Pathways, programs year. ANTHC does not supply the books, we try to choose some books that are available online for free through Libby and Hoopla for Anchorage Library members. The book club is a great way to network and gain a deeper and better understanding of leadership skills, diverse perspectives, and Alaska Native and Native American cultures.
Each month has a specific leadership theme:
ANTHC staff may receive CE or CME credits. Doctors are eligible to receive CME’s and nurses CEs for participating, many licensing and professional associations recognize a leadership book club as meeting the professional development credit requirements.
To receive credits:
Pathways and LEAD facilitate the discussions to practice a new type of public speaking. Bring your questions and comments about the book. These discussions are not academic discussions and topics often include leadership, ANTHC, Alaska Natives, and Native Americans.
In support of improving patient care, Alaska Native Medical Center (ANMC) is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
ANMC designates this activity for a maximum of 8 contact hours.
