The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Loan Repayment Program is accepting applications for 2016. This program is open to primary care physicians and other medical, dental, and mental/behavioral health professionals who work at approved NHSC sites in health professional shortage areas (HPSAs).
Selected participants may receive up to $50,000 to repay their health professions loans in exchange for a two-year service commitment. Applications will be accepted until Tuesday, April 5.
To become an NHSC-approved site, look for the NHSC site application cycle, which is expected to open in April. Sites must be located in HPSAs and provide primary care and/or medical, dental, or mental/behavioral health services regardless of a patient’s ability to pay.
