HRSA’s National Health Service Corps (NHSC) received a historic increase in funding, through the Biden Administration’s American Rescue Plan. The NHSC is recruiting for clinicians working at NHSC-approved sites and treatment facilities in Health
Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) for the NHSC Loan Repayment Program, the NHSC Substance Use Disorder Workforce Loan Repayment Program and the NHSC Rural Community Loan Repayment Program. The additional funding means that eligible clinicians may receive
NHSC awards, even at sites that have not been competitive in the past due to lower HPSA scores. In addition, the application cycle for the NHSC Scholarship Program for current medical, dental and other clinician students, is now open. NHSC clinicians have
always played a prominent role in addressing the nation’s public health, as they practice in underserved areas with limited access to primary health care, regular dental care, behavioral health care, and preventive screenings.
