About Us

The Indian Health Service (IHS), an agency within the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), works to ensure that all American Indian and Alaska Native people receive comprehensive health care services and that all Indian health facilities are staffed with well-trained, compassionate, committed health care professionals.

IHS offers an extraordinary career opportunity to provide comprehensive, patient-centered care in a variety of disciplines and health care facility settings. An Indian health career offers dedicated practitioners a chance to live and work within Native communities, learn about the culture and heritage of the Tribe and discover traditions that have been carried down for generations.

IHS is hiring physicians, pharmacists, dentists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other health professionals, offering three distinct career paths — the civil service, within a Tribal or Urban Indian Program or through the US Public Health Service (USPHS) Commissioned Corps. Applicants must be US citizens.

IHS provides for the education, recruitment and retention of health care professionals through the IHS Scholarship Program, the IHS Extern Program and the IHS Loan Repayment Program (LRP).

The policy of the IHS is to provide absolute preference to qualified Indian applicants and employees who are suitable for federal employment in filling vacancies within the IHS. IHS is an equal opportunity employer.
