ED to MED stands with its 18 national partners and additional allied groups in support of the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program.
The PSLF Program was established under the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007 and signed into law by President George W. Bush. It incentivizes careers in public service by assisting qualified individuals as they work to give back to their communities. To be eligible a borrower must make 120 qualifying monthly payments under a repayment plan while working full-time for a qualifying employer, such as a government agency, tax-exempt non-profit organization, or non-exempt non-profit that provides public services. The PSLF Program is an investment in the health, education, and safety of America’s communities.
PSLF is critical to recruiting and retaining a physician workforce equipped to meet our nation’s growing health care needs and challenges, and is an important investment in the health, education, and safety of America’s communities.
