its a medical profession killer in the making if something doesnt get changed. Not just for podiatry, but all health professions...
for those of you unaware in short 20/220 is the statute that is falling through last i heard july 1, 2009 and will cause residents to pay back loans. Residents dont make enough money as is, much less having to pay back big bucks.
i hope everyone takes the time out to write to your senator about this issue..for podiatry students all you have to do is log into apma and the form is already created, just have to forward it on.
20/220 is to allow residents to defer student loans. If Congress lets that expire as they have it scheduled, then residents will be forced to either forbear loans and have interest start accruing like mad, or start full repayment.
Yeah, it sucks a lot. And since the bailout stuff started happening I haven't heard anything about it. The Senate is off for holiday until the new session next year so my guess is we won't hear anything about his until next year.
