The Health Professional Loan Repayment Program encourages licensed primary care health professionals to serve in Washington's critical shortage areas. The program provides financial assistance through either conditional scholarships or loan repayment. The loan repayment portion of the program provides educational repayment assistance to licensed primary care health professionals. Applicants agree to provide primary care health care in rural or underserved urban areas with designated shortages. The Health Professional Loan Repayment Program (HPLRP) requires a minimum three-year contract. Awardees may work less than full time, but a minimum of 24 hours per week, which then prorates their service. For more information or to apply, please click the link below.
