Seminar on the NIH Loan Repayment Program

July 27, 2017 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Join us to learn about the NIH Loan Repayment Programs, a set of programs established by Congress and designed to recruit and retain highly qualified health professionals into biomedical or biobehavioral research careers. The escalating costs of advanced education and training in medicine and clinical specialties are forcing some scientists to abandon their research careers for higher-paying private industry or private practice careers. The LRPs counteract the financial pressure of scientists by repaying up to $35,000 annually of a researcher’s qualified educational debt in return for a commitment to engage in NIH mission-relevant research.
