Description

The SEARCH program provides health professions students and residents with opportunities to work on interdisciplinary health care teams. Currently, 22 states and U.S. territories offer SEARCH programs, extending a unique, hands-on, primary care training experience working with people in underserved rural and urban areas. Applicants who qualify for the program will be placed in a community where they can make a difference through NHSC's network of primary care associations and primary care offices.

 

To qualify for the SEARCH program, you must have started your training as a physician, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, certified nurse-midwife, dentist, dental hygienist, or mental and behavioral health professionals, including health service psychologist, clinical social worker, licensed professional counselor, marriage and family therapist, and psychiatric nurse specialist.

 

The South Dakota SEARCH program provides housing assistance to participants. Rotations of 6-8 weeks in length are available year round. 30 slots are available each year.
