Deadline Extended for Medical School Loan Repayment Program

The application deadline for the 2013 Ohio Physician Loan Repayment Program (OPLRP) has been extended to Feb. 1. The program is designed to recruit or retain primary care physicians to work in underserved areas. In exchange for loan repayment assistance, primary care physicians must commit to a minimum of two years of practice at an eligible site in a Health Professional Shortage Area or Health Resource Shortage Area, accept Medicare and Medicaid, and otherwise see patients regardless of ability to pay. The program is administered by the Ohio Department of Health’s Ohio Primary Care Office. For more information and copy of the application packet, please click here.
