National Health Service Corps
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.
Today, approximately 10,200 NHSC members provide culturally competent care to 10.7 million people. We provide this care at more than 5,000 NHSC-approved health care sites in urban, rural, and frontier areas. In addition to Corps providers currently providing care, nearly 1,400 additional members are in school or residency, preparing to practice.
The NHSC is a Federal government program administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Bureau of Health Workforce.
