Now Open: 2018 NHSC Loan Repayment Program

The National Health Service Corps helps bring health care to those who need it most. Since 1972, we have been building healthy communities by connecting primary health care providers to areas of the United States with limited access to care.

More than 50,000 primary care medical, dental, and mental and behavioral health professionals have served in the National Health Service Corps since its inception.

Application Cycle is Now Open! The 2018 National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Students to Service Loan Repayment Program (S2S LRP) is now open and will close on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. ET. Read the 2018 Application and Program Guidance carefully before you start your application.

About the program The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Students to Service Loan Repayment Program provides up to $120,000 (tax free) to medical (MD and DO) or dental (DDS or DMD) students in their final year of school in return for a commitment to provide primary health care full-time for at least 3 years or part-time for 6 years at an approved NHSC site in a Health Professional Shortage Area of greatest need.

 

 

Plan Ahead

Create a Federal Student Aid ID before beginning the application process to electronically import your Federal loan information for your application.

Gather documentation you will need to submit with your application. You will need loan information verification, school transcript, verification of good standing, proof of passing Step/Level 1 of USMLE/COMLEX or documentation verifying that you have passed Part I of the National board Dental Examination, as well as letters of recommendation and a CV or resume.

Visit the Health Workforce Connector to explore the many different places that S2S LRP participants can practice after completing their residencies.
