A.T. Still University-Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM) Dean Margaret Wilson, DO, ’82, and Brent Speak, DO, ’05, ATSU-KCOM assistant professor & chair, Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Women’s Health, were part of a panel on the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) to kick off National Primary Care Week on Monday.

The panel provided an overview of NHSC and its scholarship and loan repayment programs. Scholarship recipients can receive up to four years of full payment for tuition and fees, some educational expenses, and a monthly stipend, in exchange for one year of service at NHSC sites. 

Additionally, the Loan Repayment Program offers financial incentives for those healthcare professionals who choose to serve in a health professional shortage area (HPSA).

HSPAs are designated geographic areas or populations determined by the secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to have a shortage of health professionals. These sites include community health centers, migrant health centers, private practices, rural health clinics, Indian Health Service sites, and prisons. 

For more information about NHSC and its programs, visit nhsc.hrsa.gov.
