National Health Service Corps Accepting Applications for Approved Sites
Application webinar to be held April 26

The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) is accepting applications for facilities to become approved NHSC sites. The NHSC provides assistance for qualifying practice sites in recruiting and retaining community-responsive, culturally competent primary care clinicians. Once a facility is approved as an NHSC site, position vacancies will be published on the NHSC Jobs Center and viewed by hundreds of clinicians, including NHSC Scholars and those interested in the loan repayment program.

Facilities may be eligible to become an NHSC-approved site if they are located in an area with a shortage of health professionals; provide primary care medical, dental, or mental and behavioral health services; provide services regardless of a patient’s ability to pay; offer discounted fees to patients who qualify; and accept patients covered by Medicare, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program. NHSC will host an application webinar April 26 from 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. (PST). More information is available at Applications are due June 7.
