NHSC loan repayment opportunity available to fourth-year medical students

Planning to pursue primary care? This program could help you pay down a large chunk of your loans.

The 2018 National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Students to Service Loan Repayment Program (S2S LRP) application cycle opens Tuesday, Aug. 29.

The program is open to medical students completing their final year of schooling in an institution accredited by the U.S. Students must be planning to choose a career in primary care.

Students who join the program will receive up to $120,000 tax free. In exchange, they’ll complete at least three years of full-time service or six years of half-time clinical practice in a Health Professional Shortage Area after finishing their residency training.
