National Health Service Corps
The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) is a federal program that provides scholarships or repays the educational loans of primary care physicians and other health care providers (nurse practitioners, physician assistants, dentists and hygienists, mental health professionals and certified nurse midwives) who agree to serve a minimum of two years in a federally designated health professional shortage area.
The NHSC must approve both the health care provider and the placement site. The Office of Health Professional Recruitment assists in the paperwork necessary to designate sites and processes matches between health care providers and designated sites.
