Bureau of Clinician Recruitment & Service


The mission of the Bureau of Clinician Recruitment and Service (BCRS)  is to improve the health of the Nation's underserved communities and vulnerable populations by coordinating the recruitment and retention of caring health professionals in the healthcare system and supporting communities' efforts to build more integrated and sustainable systems of care.

The BCRS supports students and clinicians with a desire to serve by identifying clinical experiences in underserved areas, job placement assistance and scholarship and educational loan repayment opportunities.  The BCRS also supports the development of health professions faculty to train the next generation of health care professionals.  

The BCRS supports HRSA grantees, other safety net providers, and critical nursing shortage facilities with technical assistance and support to develop effective recruitment and retention programs in their communities, including the utilization of the various scholarship, loan repayment and recruitment programs administered through the bureau.
