Student Loan Repayment Programs

Doctors graduating from medical school can be saddled with several thousand dollars in student loan debt which can take several years - or decades - to pay off. There are several service-based programs that can help new physicians pay off a portion of or refinance their debt. There are many programs students in medical school can consider as they explore career options.
