NHSC Pathway Readiness Technical Assistance Program

The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Pathway Readiness Technical Assistance Program is a five-year initiative of the Health Resources and Services Administration Bureau of Health Workforce. The program will run from September 2021 – August 2025 with the first year focused on program development. The program helps prepare NHSC Scholarship Program and Students to Services Loan Repayment Program participants for their service at NHSC-approved sites by building the capacity to 1.) eliminate health disparities through community engagement and advocacy and 2.) build their resiliency to stressors that can arise from routine practice and during a public health crisis.

Become a National NHSC Advisor and/or Mentor

If you are an NHSC member or alumni and interested in becoming an advisor, we want to hear from you! NHSC members and alumni can help support the NHSC Pathway Readiness Technical Assistance Program by sharing case studies from their work in the field, serving as mentors, providing guidance on educational products and materials, and sharing their experiences.

The Association of Clinicians for the Underserved strives for diversity in perspectives and experiences and recognizes that one’s race, ethnicity, ability, gender identity, sexual orientation, and other lived experience brings tremendous value when delivering care to underserved populations. Individuals who identify with historically excluded groups are especially encouraged to participate as an NHSC Advisor and Mentor.
