The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) 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 40,000 primary care medical, dental, and mental and behavioral health professionals have served in the National Health Service Corps since its inception.

Today, there are nearly 10,000 NHSC members providing culturally competent care to more than 10.4 million people. We provide this care at more than 14,000 NHSC-approved health care sites in urban, rural, and frontier areas. In addition to Corps providers currently providing care, nearly 1,000 students, residents, and health providers receive scholarships or participate in the Student to Service Loan Repayment program to prepare to practice.


The NHSC is a Federal government program that is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). Specifically, the Corps is administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Bureau of Clinician Recruitment and Service (BCRS).
