Our Health Systems Development shop just got a new workforce recruitment and retention grant from the National Health Service Corps to improve the number of healthcare providers that practice where we have shortages (technically called underserved areas).  The Corps offers medical, dental, and behavioral health providers the opportunity to repay their student loan debts in exchange for serving Arizona’s underserved communities for a period of time.  Up to $60K in loan repayment is available for providers who commit to serve for two years- or up to $170K if they sign up for 5 years.  There’s also a scholarship program.  Visit http://nhsc.hrsa.gov/ for more information on the National Health Service Corp Loan Repayment Programs or contact Ana Roscetti, Workforce Program Manager at [email protected].
