Impact of Service-Based Student Loan Repayment Program on the Primary Care Workforce

Caitlin S. Davis, Peter Meyers, Andrew W. Bazemore and Lars E. Peterson

As the average level of medical education indebtedness rises, physicians look to programs such as Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) and National Health Service Corps (NHSC) to manage debt burden. Both represent service-dependent loan repayment programs, but the requirements and program outcomes diverge, and assessing the relative uptake of each program may help to inform health workforce policy decisions. We sought to describe variation in the composition of repayment program participant groups and measure relative impact on patient access to care.
