USC and the National Health Service Corps

The University of Southern California School of Dentistry hosted a special information session for doctoral dental students interested in participating in the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Scholarship Program. Twenty USC students attended and were introduced to the program by NHSC scholarship recipient and USC class of 2007 dental student Blake Olson, who has received the scholarship since 2004.  Fellow dental student Jessica Nguyen, who applied to the program last year, also gave advice and pointers on a successful application and interview.  

Blake is now applying to Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) community dental clinics to fulfill his service commitment.  Former scholarship recipient, Dr. Kathy Elizondo, has recently completing her service commitment at the USC/Union Rescue Mission dental clinic for the homeless in the Los Angeles Skid Row HPSA and continues there as dental director.
