Description

Physician loan forgiveness helps Minnesota’s communities and physicians.  With loan forgiveness assistance, a physician gets help paying down educational debt and the community gets a doctor.  The physician makes a commitment to practice in the community for a minimum of three to four years.  Once there, most physicians choose to stay much longer.   The MAFP Foundation awards a grant to the Minnesota Medical Association Foundation in support of this program.
