What is Compass?

Compass is a management development program for Alaska Native employees who demonstrate management capabilities and leadership as evidenced by going above and beyond what is asked or expected of them.


This comprehensive development opportunity focuses on key competencies of management in alignment with YKHC’s Napartet Strategy:

  • Healthy Community
  • Healthy People
  • Care Delivery
  • Corporate Capability & Culture

A typical week in the Compass program may entail:

  • Group Discussions
  • Guest Speakers
  • Visit/Rotations through various departments within YKHC
  • Self-Study & Project Development

YKHC’s Compass program offers a unique, comprehensive, and culturally relevant opportunity for employees who demonstrate a desire and willingness to develop and learn critical management skills.

Thank you for looking towards the horizon as we work to prepare the future leaders of the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation.
