NHSC Designation

UHD is recognized as a National Health Corps Service (NHSC) site. The NHSC provides scholarships and loan repayments to health care providers in exchange for a period of service in a health professional shortage area (HPSA).1 The NHSC is administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Congress created the NHSC in the Emergency Health Personnel Act of 1970 (P.L. 91-623), and its programs have been reauthorized and amended several times since then.2
