Native American Healthcare Scholars Program

Native American Healthcare Scholars Program

What We Do

The Native American Healthcare Scholars Program (NAHSP) provides mentoring and assistance to students working toward and through medical education. 

 The Native American Healthcare Scholars Program is a collaboration between the University of South Dakota and the Great Plains Tribal Leaders' Health Board. Supported, in part, by grant CPIMP151092 from the Office of Minority Health, Department of Health and Human Services. 

NAHSP Scholars 

The Native American Healthcare Scholarship Program (NAHSP) is a Stanford School of Medicine (SSOM) healthcare workforce development effort component. It supports and fosters the healthcare profession interests of a select cadre of South Dakota American Indian high school students.

NAHSP students gain career development support provided by NAHSP staff, have opportunities to engage with healthcare profession students who serve as near-peer mentors, engage in mentored research or community service projects, and are afforded opportunities to attend national conferences in support of their career interests. NAHSP students continue to be mentored and supported as they progress through their undergraduate education at the University of South Dakota.
