The Ohio Physician Loan Repayment Program (OPLRP) is a program in which American primary care physicians agree to practice primary care medicine 40 hours per week in a Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) or former HPSA. They also agree to treat a percentage of Medicaid and Medicare patients equal to the percentage in their service area. In return, they receive up to $80,000 of medical school debt repaid ($20,000 over a four-year period).
OPLRP participants have an initial contract of two years of service, then a follow-up contract of either one two-year contract or two one-year contracts.
Participants must be primary care physicians in the following areas:
- Family Practice
- Internal Medicine
- Not Applicable
Limited to primary care, new graduates or who have been practicing for less than 3 years.
This funding opportunity requires applicants to hold U.S. Citizenship.
