Hi IHSMD, thanks for offering to provide more info about the program. My boyfriend just stumbled across IHS yesterday while researching employment opportunities for dentists. I'm working towards med school and information on the IHS website about IHS medical is rather sparse. I love the fact that the emphasis of the program is to provide high quality medical care to underserved areas within the US. What does IHS look for in potential candidates and can you apply for multiple locations? Does IHS offer rotations or residency programs for med students? Finally, how would you describe the lifestyle and day to day duties?
Thanks so much and can't wait to hear back
