Proposed Project: National Health Service Corps Information Follow-up Form—[New]

The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) of the Bureau of Clinician Recruitment and Service, HRSA, 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 Information Follow-up Form, which NHSC will use when exhibiting at national and regional conferences as well as when presenting on campuses to health profession students, is an optional form that a health profession student, licensed clinician, faculty member, or clinical site administrator can fill out. Individuals who submit the form to NHSC, may ask questions and/or sign up to receive periodic program updates and other general information regarding opportunities with the NHSC via e-mail. An individual is free to discontinue receiving communication from NHSC at anytime by e-mailing NHSCupdate@hrsa.gov. Completed forms will contain information such as, the names of the individuals, theire-mail address(es), their city and State, their phone number, the organization where they are employed (or the school which they attend), the year they intend to graduate (if applicable), how they heard about NHSC, which NHSC programs they are interested in, etc. Assistance in completing the form will be given by the BCRS staff person (or BCRS representative) who is present at the event. Based on the FY10 exhibit and presentation schedule, NHSC could have gathered information from 2,400 individuals. Using this as a guide for future years, the estimated annual burden is as follows:
