    Resources

    The Nevada Governor’s Office of Science, Innovation and Technology (OSIT), was created to increase access to high-quality healthcare by growing Nevada’s healthcare workforce, particularly in underserved communities. A practitioner may enter the Pennington Rural Health Service Loan Repayment Program (PRHSLRP) by engaging in full-time clinical practice and residing in an assigned rural community in exchange for funding used to repay qualified educational loans. Funding under this program will be provided by the William N. Pennington Foundation.

      Eligible Practice Locations will be determined by OSIT to include service Rural Sites in communities in the following counties and cities which are at a minimum 60 miles from Reno, NV: Washoe, Lyon, Churchill, Pershing, Lander, Eureka, Elko, White Pine, Mineral, Esmerelda, Humboldt, and Tonopah.
