NHSC Accepting Applications for Loan Repayment Programs

The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) is accepting applications through February 21 at 7:30 pm ET for the following two loan repayment programs.

The NHSC Loan Repayment Program offers licensed Family Physicians and other primary care clinicians the opportunity to receive up to $50,000 in loan repayment in exchange for serving at least two years at an NHSC-approved site in a designated Health Professional Shortage Area.

The Substance Use Disorder Workforce Loan Repayment Program supports the recruitment and retention of health professionals needed in underserved areas to expand access to SUD treatment and prevent overdose deaths. It offers physicians and other eligible clinicians up to $75,000 in qualifying student loan repayment in exchange for a three-year commitment to provide substance use disorder treatment services at an NHSC-approved site.

NHSC is hosting an application webinar on January 10, 2:30-3:30 pm ET.
