How to Apply

The Delta Doctors program allows nondomestic physicians who are trained in this country to work in health professional shortage areas or medically under-served areas for three years. The program is not a residency program, nor is the Delta Regional Authority able to assist in the placement of nondomestic medical students into residency programs. Physicians must practice at worksites located within DRA’s congressionally mandated footprint.
