August 29, 2017

The 2018 National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Students to Service Loan Repayment Program (S2S LRP) will be on Tuesday, August 29, 2017.

The S2S LRP is open to medical (MD or DO) and dental students (DDS or DMD) in their final year of a U.S. accredited school who are planning to pursue a career in primary care.

Participants receive up to $120,000 (tax free) in exchange for at least three years of full-time service at an NHSC-approved site in a Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA).

Service Commitment
Upon completion of residency for medical students (dental residency is encouraged but not required), recipients must engage in 3 years of full-time or 6 years of half-time clinical practice at one or more NHSC-approved service sites located in a Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) of greatest need.
