Members don't see this ad.
I'm finishing my senior year and am realizing how BROKE I really am! :eek: :eek: :eek: And will be for a while!!!! I was wondering if any of you knew of any loan repayment programs that are available for PM&R docs. Since PM&R is often considered "the primary care specialty for the disabled" and I know that there are a lot of loan forgiveness/repayment programs for most primary care specialties, do any of you know about this option for PM&R? Are any of you involved in any programs such as this? If so, what has been your experience?

Although I don't know of any loan repayment programs for PM&R per se...I knew one graduate of our program who joined a practice who promised to pay off her loans if she stayed on for at least 5 years. And her salary was pretty good to begin with.

Well that sounds good, digable. I wonder if there are many places that do that. Do you know what her salary was to begin with?
