State Program Helps Recruit Physicians, Repay Medical Student Loans

The Michigan State Loan Repayment Program (MSLRP) provides loan repayment assistance to medical professionals who are willing to provide full-time primary health care services in a Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) at a not-for-profit health clinic for two to four years. Up to two SLRP Application Periods will be available each year, during which eligible health care providers may submit their Complete, Single-submission SLRP Application Packages--one during the month of April and a possible second during the month of November.

Contracts awarded will allow employer/local matching contributions to be combined equally with federal funding through the Health Resources and Services Administration to provide this loan repayment assistance. Participants receive these loan repayment benefits tax-free.

Primary medical care providers receive up to $50,000 over their initial two-year contracts.
