Public Service Loan Forgiveness

Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) not only makes careers in medicine more accessible to students and professionals nationwide, it also creates incentives for them to serve their communities.

While the Department of Education has made recent improvements to the program that intend to ease the application and approval process for aspiring doctors and researchers, long-term substantive change is still needed. The AAMC Action community works to protect and strengthen PSLF and other student aid and recruitment programs — to make it easier for doctors to enter into public service. Opportunities to strengthen the PSLF programs are outlined in this AAMC letter to the Department of Education.
