Student Loan Repayment Program

The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) is offering the opportunity to health care professionals to participate in a Student Loan Repayment Program. The ISDH is seeking primary care physicians, primary care nurse practitioners, and certified nurse midwives who have educational loans and are willing to provide primary health care services in an Indiana Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA). The ISDH has a matching fund grant from the Bureau of Primary Health care, Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) to provide loan repayment money to eligible health professionals.

The purpose of this program is to increase the number of primary health care professionals practicing in Indiana HPSAs. The Program is designed to benefit the professional, who has the outstanding educational loan, as well as the shortage area. The service commitment time period is two years. The student loan repayment will be provided to the health professional at the end of the first year and at the end of the second year of service upon remittance of paid lender receipt documentation.

The deadline for submitting an application is February 7, 2005. An application form can be obtained from:
