Loan Repayment Programs

The GBPW administers loan repayment assistance programs; the Georgia Physician Loan Repayment Program (GPLRP) and Rural Areas Assistance Programs (RAA).
Both programs assist in paying post-graduate, medical education student loan debt for practitioners who agree to practice medicine or dentistry full time in a underserved, rural county in Georgia.

The GPLRP is limited to Physicians and aimed at practicing in the Primary Care/Core Specialties: Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, OB/GYN, Emergency Medicine, and General Surgery.
