NHSC offers loan repayment program
The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) is accepting applications for its loan repayment program through May 26. Connecting practitioners with communities in areas that are most in need of primary health care services, the NHSC supports these services in the form of loan repayment and scholarships.
Numerous service options are available for the loan repayment program, including a full-time, five-year service commitment that would receive up to $170,000 in loan repayment. A full-time two-year service commitment would result in the practitioner receiving up to $60,000 in loan repayment. Other contracts accommodate half-time service.
Around the country, the NHSC is made up of 7,000 primary health professionals at more than 10,000 health care sites. Visit nhsc.hrsa.gov for more information, including an application that can be completed entirely online.
