HRSA Pediatric Specialty Loan Repayment Program Has Launched

A new program from HRSA’s Bureau of Health Workforce makes a $15 million investment to recruit and retain clinicians who provide health care to children and adolescents. Deadline to apply is July 20. The program is open to eligible clinicians providing pediatric medical subspecialty, pediatric surgical specialty, or child and adolescent behavioral health care, including substance use prevention and treatment services, and provides up to $100,000 in loan repayment support. Clinicians must commit to serving three years at an approved site in a health professional shortage area, medically underserved area, or to providing care to a medically underserved population.
