Are you a health professions student wondering how you are going to afford your education? Or a rural provider trying to recruit new practitioners?
If so – we have two great guides for you!
First are the presentation slides from Head for the Hills from Justin Crow’s Getting the Most from Federal & State Loan Repayment Programs discussion. This provides an in-depth guide as to what programs are available and who qualifies for them.
AND – from the Rural Assistance Center – Scholarships, Loans, and Loan Repayment for Rural Health Professions
This guide includes:
- Types of Health Education Financial Aid
- Operating Successful Rural Health Education Financial Aid Programs
- Frequently Asked Questions
Rural areas face a documented shortage of essential healthcare professionals, especially in primary care fields. The rising costs of education directly impact the ability of students to pursue a healthcare degree and compound the rural health workforce shortage. These guides help to bridge the gap.
