The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) is a federal government program that is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). The Corps is administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Bureau of Clinician Recruitment and Service (BCRS). The NHSC awards scholarships and loan repayment to primary care providers in NHSC-eligible disciplines. NHSC providers, in turn, commit to serving for at least two years at an NHSC-approved site located in a Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA). Many choose to continue serving at their sites beyond the initial NHSC service commitment. The two fuding programs offered are the NHSC Loan Repayment Program and the NHSC Scholarship Program.
