The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) was established in 1970 to recruit health professionals for Health Professional Shortage Areas. Health professionals with service obligations under the NHSC Scholarship Program and NHSC Loan Repayment Program (administered by the Division of Scholarships and Loan Repayments) and volunteers are sent to communities with one primary care physician per fewer than 3,500 people. Information about the NHSC's provision of a health practitioner for a community is available from this office.
