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 HPSA.

The NHSC must approve both the health care provider and the placement site. The Primary Care Office provides technical assistance to clinicians and site applicants at the state level prior to application to the National Health Service Corps.
