About Indian Health Service

The Indian Health Service (IHS) works to ensure all American Indian and Alaska Native people receive comprehensive health care services and all Indian health facilities are staffed with well-trained, compassionate, committed health care professionals. 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. An Indian health career offers dedicated practitioners a chance to live and work within Native communities, providing them with a unique opportunity to learn the heritage of the Tribe, discover the traditions that have been carried down for generations and gain cultural insight into the beliefs and values of this deserving and appreciative patient population.

IHS is hiring physicians, pharmacists, dentists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other health professionals, offering three distinct career paths — the civil service, within a Tribal or Urban Indian Program or through the US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps. Applicants must be US citizens, board eligible and board certified. For more information, visit www.ihs.gov/careeropps.

The policy of the IHS is to provide absolute preference to qualified Indian applicants and employees who are suitable for federal employment in filling vacancies within the IHS. IHS is an equal opportunity employer.
