IHS’ Division of Health Professions Support (DHPS) provides for the education, recruitment and retention of health care professionals through the IHS Scholarship Program, the IHS Extern Program and the IHS Loan Repayment Program (LRP).

An Indian health career offers clinicians an extraordinary career opportunity to provide comprehensive, patient-centered care in a variety of disciplines and health care facility settings.
