HRSA Pre-Screening Form
This program is expected to fill quickly as there are limited. All pre-screening forms are time stamped based upon arrival and processed in that order. Because of the high volume of interested people in this program, we cannot hold spots. Completing a pre-screening form does not give you a spot; you will be contacted in a few weeks regarding your application’s status and to arrange an intake.
