> National Health Service Corps Loan Repayment Program
The National Health Service Corps Loan Repayment Program recruits health professionals to work in selected health professional shortage areas and, in return, helps repay their qualifying educational loans. In addition to loan repayment, these clinicians receive a competitive salary, some tax relief benefits, and a chance to have a significant impact on a community. Maximum repayment during the required initial two-year contract is $25,000 each year. Participants may extend loan repayments beyond two years, one year at a time, to the extent they have unpaid qualifying educational loans and serve at an eligible site.
General Program Requirements:
In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a US national, citizen or dual citizen who is not medically qualified/certified/licensed but has student loan debt and is willing to provide primary health care services in an area with a shortage of health professionals.
