205.021

State Loan Repayment Program: Recognizing the effectiveness of the State Physician Education Loan Repayment Program in recruiting and retaining physicians in underserved areas of the state, the Texas Medical Association supports increased state funding for this program to allow the state to maximize federal matching dollars, to maintain the four-year escalating repayment levels as a retention aid for underserved areas, and to allow for annual growth in the number of physicians receiving loan repayment (CME Rep. 5-I-00; amended CM-PDHCA Rep. 2-A-17).
