Dr. Verlyn Corbett

Dr. Corbett graduated from the University of Southern California School of Medicine and completed his Family Practice residency at the University of New Mexico in 1992.  He worked for the Indian Health Service in New Mexico for 8 years prior to joining Southcentral Foundation in 2000.

His experience working in a very “traditional” model of health care delivery with the Indian Health Service, to his current role as Medical Director and active clinician with SCF gives him a unique perspective on a “system change”.  He has managed his own panel of Customer/Owners through many layers of growth and change at SCF over the past 16 years.  Current interests include Physician recruitment and retention, working on SCF’s plan to respond to the opiate epidemic,  and partnering with service chiefs of the other medical specialties on campus to facilitate communication, customer service and satisfaction for both internal and external customers.

Originally from Reno Nevada, he lives in Anchorage with his wife Larisa, and their 4 children and 3 dogs.
