What We Do

Health Planning and Systems Development runs programs that strengthen health care access with a focus on rural areas and underserved populations. We also conduct statewide health planning to help sustain organized and efficient health care delivery in Alaska. 

The SHARP Program practitioner loan repayment application opportunity, SHARP-I 2014, is currently open and will remain open through Friday December 5, 2014. Go to the SHARP Support-for-Service link to the right to access the application.

The next SHARP-I clinician solicitation (SHARP-I 2014) is now set and a Public Notice has been issued.

This solicitation of practitioner applicants is time-limited.  Opening occurs Monday 10/06/14 through Friday 12/05/14, at 5:00 pm (Alaska Time). Check the SHARP website for information and applications.
