NHSC programs provide scholarships and student loan repayment for health care professionals engaged in providing comprehensive medical primary care, dental and behavioral health in areas across the country with a shortage of health care professionals. An NHSC-approved site is a health care facility that provides comprehensive outpatient, ambulatory and primary health care services to populations residing in Health Professional Shortage Areas.
