About the NHSC

The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) helps bring health care to those who need it most. Since 1972, we have been building healthy communities by connecting primary health care providers to areas of the United States with limited access to care. 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, 9,600 NHSC members provide culturally competent care to more than 10 million people. We provide this care at 5,000 NHSC-approved health care sites in urban, rural, and frontier areas. In addition to Corps providers currently providing care, nearly 1,100 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.
