Loan Repayment Applications Open Soon

The application cycle for CalHealthCares opens on January 18, 2021. CalHealthCares is a relatively new loan repayment program for new physicians who maintain a patient caseload of 30 percent or more Medi-Cal beneficiaries. Awardees can receive up to $300,000 in exchange for a five-year service obligation. Awardees must have graduated from a physician residency program and/or completed a fellowship within the past five years, have an existing medical school loan debt, and cannot participate in another loan repayment program. Below are important CalHealthCares deadlines. Potential applicants can attend a webinar for more information and peruse the website at www.calhealthcares.org.
