Idaho is 49th out of the 50 states per capita for physicians and we have very few loan repayment opportunities so we need to keep the those that work. Idaho has success stories about NHSC recipients who have stayed in Idaho because of their NHSC support. Please contact your congressman...

Since 1972, the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) has awarded scholarships and loan repayment to family physicians who commit to practice for at least two years in an approved Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) site. NHSC programs provide access to primary care in underserved areas as well as medical student debt relief. This effective program will expire September 30, 2017 if Congress does not act. Please write your Representative to urge their support for NHSC funding.
