Just Announced! The Zika Response and Preparedness Act (Pub. L. 114-223) provides $6 million for National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Loan Repayment Program (LRP) awards to clinicians to serve in U.S. Territories and Freely Associated States (Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Territory of American Samoa, Territory of Guam, Republic of Palau, Republic of the Marshall Islands, and Federated States of Micronesia) affected by the Zika virus or other vector-borne diseases.
Health care providers can receive up to $70,000 toward educational loan repayment in exchange for a three-year commitment at NHSC-approved sites in the Caribbean and the Pacific. The primary purpose of this funding is to expand the availability of high quality primary care and pediatric subspecialty clinicians to meet the health care needs of those living in U.S. Affiliated Island Areas affected by Zika virus and other vector-borne diseases.
Subject to the availability of funds, loan repayment awards will be made to:
(1) Retain current primary care, behavioral and mental health, allied health, and certain pediatric subspecialty clinicians practicing at NHSC-approved sites in Puerto Rico and other U.S. affiliated Islands.
(2) Extend the service of newly hired primary care, behavioral and mental health, allied health, and pediatric subspecialty clinicians at NHSC-approved sites in the affected areas; and
(3) Recruit to these affected areas new primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, midwives, certain pediatric subspecialists, and behavioral and mental health professionals who are completing their residency, fellowship, or other graduate training (as applicable) and who are ready to begin providing clinical care by July 18, 2017.

Health Careers Collaborative Opportunity for NAO Membership
Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP)
For a quarter of a century, the Summer Medical and Dental Education Program (SMDEP) successfully empowered students underrepresented in the health professions, and provided the proper resources and tools for students to successfully act upon their dreams in specific health careers. In 2016, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) program expanded to include students interested in ALL areas of health care, not just within the medical or dental profession, to provide an interprofessional education focus.
Today, the Summer Health Professions Education Program (formerly SMDEP) www.shpep.org sponsored by the AAMC, serves as the free, six-week academic enrichment program funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Eligible students include, but are not limited to, individuals who identify as African American/Black, American Indian and Alaska Native and Hispanic/Latino, and who are from communities of socioeconomic and educational disadvantage.
In our tradition of partnership, the NAO membership has been invited to partner with AAMC to share resource information about the SHPEP opportunity links and program brochure in your service regions, to better support and facilitate access to interested health career students who may benefit.
The AAMC encourages participants to apply and take the opportunity to join this FREE, summer enrichment program that is filled with countless career development opportunities. For more information, click here.
