Welcome to Alaska Professional Seminars!

Alaska Professional Seminars Inc. is pleased to invite you to join Dr. Bruce Gantz for the University of Iowa Department of Otolaryngology Alumni meeting in Homer, Alaska.

Made famous as the "End of the Road" in Tom Bodett's tales, Homer is at the end of the Sterling highway. Our seaside town is accessible by land, sea, or air with daily flights from Anchorage. Homer is known as the Halibut fishing capital of the world, but is also a great location for kayaking, bear viewing, hiking, glacier viewing, and art vacations. Homer is also known as the eco- and adventure tourism capital of Alaska.

Nestled among rolling hills, this seaside – and truly seagoing - community has many unique attractions. Home port to the F/V Time Bandit of the Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch” fame, Homer's museums, art galleries, fine dining (you will be amazed at the quality of our restaurants) and deluxe accommodations, all help create Alaska-sized memories to last a lifetime.

The Homer Spit ("spit" is a geological landform term) is the second longest in the world and was recently named one of the best 100 beaches in the United States for its incredible views and variety of wildlife along the wonderful 4.5 mile multi-use trail that runs from its base to its tip – the true end of the road on Alaska’s Highway 1.

And just across the Bay, less than 10 miles from the Spit, is the state's only designated wilderness park – Kachemak Bay State Wilderness Park. Local water taxis specialize in bringing outdoor lovers to the trailheads and campgrounds of the park.

This unique combination of location, commerce, beauty, natural resources and wilderness makes Homer a wonderful place to visit, and a great place to live!

Can you imagine a better place to obtain up to 20 hours of AMA PRA Category 1 credit?

Travel to Homer is easy.  From Anchorage, five flights per day on ERA or Grant Aviation fly the 117 miles to Homer (as the crow flies).   Many choose to drive the five hours to Homer in order to experience the featured beauty and grandeur of the Alaska scenery.  Airline space is limited during the summer months and we recommend that you make your travel arrangements as early as possible.
