Eligible healthcare facilities can now apply for approval to become a National Health Service Corps (NHSC) site.

The National Health Service Corps is a federal government program administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Bureau of Health Workforce and created to address a growing primary care workforce shortage.

NHSC programs provide scholarships and student loan repayment to health care professionals in exchange for a service commitment to practice in designated Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs). NHSC-approved sites provide outpatient, comprehensive primary health care services to people in HPSAs.

All National Health Service Corps-approved sites receive the benefits of online, interactive access to the Health Workforce Connector, an online platform that allows you to:

• Create, manage, and advertise new job vacancies and training positions
• Search candidate profiles where you can learn about the qualification factors, experience, and other relevant information that highlight a candidate’s competencies
• View a comprehensive list of job seekers and students who have expressed interest in a position you advertised on the Health Workforce Connector
