How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Council has been providing feedback on the Agency's endeavors to reshape the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) as outlined in HHS Priorities through their face-to-face meetings up to 4 times per year or more as needed. The Council provides direct feedback to the NHSC Director, HRSA Administrator, and HHS Secretary. In FY 2022, the Council focused on the continuation of COVID-19 impact on our communities and clinicians, centered on clinician burnout and resiliency; health equity with a focus on maternal and child health and review of the development of Maternal and Child Target Areas (MCTAs); increased support in the NHSC workforce via data analysis efforts for future forecasting, continued discussions on future development and use of telehealth opportunities in rural areas. The Council discussed health equity and the role of the healthcare workforce in delivering quality care and reducing health disparities in rural and underserved communities; and creating a NHSC 50th Anniversary White Paper with an overview of the NHSC history, current impact the NHSC has made in communities and the future aspirations of the NHSC. The Council met three times in FY 2022.
How is membership balanced?*Council members are primary health care professionals with a broad range of experience: as active clinicians, NHSC alumni, participants in health care delivery systems, academics, site administrators, and members of state-based and professional organizations. There is also a continual balance of minority and female members on the Council. Members bring to the Council first-hand and policy level expertise on meeting the needs of the urban and rural underserved through an interdisciplinary model of care that is community responsive and culturally competent.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Council can meet up to a minimum of four times per year or more as needed (in person and virtually) to provide advice and guidance to the NHSC regarding those issues which have an impact on the NHSC's ability to meet its mission. The Council's contribution is crucial to the continuation of the NHSC's effectiveness as the only federal program which directly addresses the problem of maldistribution of clinicians in the nation. It is this problem which is the root cause of underservice and has become increasingly critical due to the rapid changes in the health care environment in recent years.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*This Council is the sole source of objective program and policy guidance to the Secretary regarding the function of the NHSC in addressing the needs of the underserved. The NHSC program is a unique program that works directly with individuals rather than institutions, input from those persons directly impacted by the program are critical to its success. In addition, Council members' experience and commitment to the mission provide to the Director of the NHSC, the HRSA Administrator, and the health professional shortage designation program a unique resource that informs their daily operations and long range planning.

Number Of Recommendations CommentThe Council serves as a forum to identify the priorities for the NHSC and bring forward and anticipate future program issues and concerns. This work is done through ongoing communication with program staff, professional organizations, communities and program participants.
The Council functions as a sounding board for proposed policy changes by using the varying levels of expertise represented on the Council to advise on specific program areas.
The Council can develop and distribute white papers, briefs and letters of recommendations that clearly state issues and/or concerns relating to the NHSC with specific recommendations for necessary policy revisions.
Currently, recommendations are being made to improve program operations and policies as well as to direct future program activities. Recommendations are shared with the Director of the NHSC, the program, and the HRSA Administrator.
