Loan Forgiveness and Repayment Assistance Programs

Reducing Loan Debt Through Service

If you are interested in a service career, or if you want to reduce your medical school debt, working in public service or following a career in the military may be viable career options that could also provide financial benefits. While these programs provide great opportunities for some borrowers, it is also important for borrowers to be aware of the service requirements and commitment that they agree to when participating in these programs.

The AAMC provides a database of loan repayment, forgiveness, and scholarship programs. This searchable database provides detailed information about programs available to medical and health professions students. Although this database provides a compilation of opportunities, it certainly is not an exhaustive list and medical students and graduates are encouraged to talk with the financial aid staff at their school to see if any additional information or resources may be available.
