The NHSC: Empowering Clinicians for Resiliency and Transformative Care Initiative

NHSC Logo (Larger)The National Health Service Corps (NHSC): Empowering Clinicians for Resiliency and Transformative Care Initiative is a five-year program of the Health Resources and Services Administration Bureau of Health Workforce. The goal of the Initiative is to equip NHSC Scholars and Students to Service (S2S) Loan Repayment Program (LRP) participants with the information they need to succeed as they enter the workforce and begin caring for patients with complex medical needs and barriers to care in communities that have been historically underserved.

Through this Initiative, NHSC participants and their NHSC-approved site Points of Contact (POCs) can access exclusive trainings and resources to better understand and address health inequities and social determinants of health while supporting their own health and well-being. Peer networking, coaching, and grand round sessions are also built into the initiative to enhance the learning experience and offer a space for peer support.

These professional development opportunities are grouped into the following series:

  • Series 1: Clinician Well-Being and Self-Care (February-March 2023)
  • Series 2: Fostering Resilience at the Organizational Level (April-July 2023)
         This series is designed for site leadership to strengthen how they support clinician wellness and promote organizational resilience.
  • Series 3: Health Inequities and Social Determinants of Health (August-October 2023)

Who Can Participate?
These educational resources are promoted directly to and only accessible to NHSC Scholars, S2S LRP participants, and the NHSC-Approved Sites where these participants practice. If your organization has NHSC Scholars and S2S LRP participants on staff, we encourage you to remind them about this professional development opportunity and support them in engaging with the resources and virtual trainings. The curriculum also includes resources for NHSC-Approved Site Staff to help organizations cultivate clinician well-being by creating supportive, efficient, and healthy work environments. If your site is hosting NHSC Scholars and S2S LRP participants, your leadership and administrative site staff are eligible to participate in the webinars and access materials through your Site Points of Contact (POCs).*
