Proposed Project: The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Professional Training and Information Questionnaire (PTIQ) (OMB No. 0915-0208)—Revision
The NHSC of the HRSA's Bureau of Health Professions (BHPr), is committed to improving the health of the Nation's underserved by uniting communities in need with caring health professionals and by supporting communities' efforts to build better systems of care.
The NHSC (authorized by the Public Health Service Act, section 331) collects data on its programs to ensure compliance with legislative mandates and to report to Congress and policy makers on program accomplishments. To meet these objectives, the NHSC requires a core set of information collected annually that is appropriate for monitoring and evaluating performance and reporting on annual trends.
The PTIQ is used to collect data related to professional practice from NHSC Scholarship Program recipients including physicians, dentists, physician assistants (PAs), nurse practioners (Nps), and certified nurse midwives (CNMs), in the current year's placement cycle. This data is used to match an individual health care professional with an appropriate clinical practice setting.
The PTIQ will be mailed twelve months in advance of the intended service availability date.
Estimates of annualized reporting burden are as follows: Start Printed Page 50452
