Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: December 12, 2014 03:32 PM
From: Senator John C. Rafferty, Jr.
To: All Senate members
Subject: Physician Loan Forgiveness
I plan to re-introduce legislation, SB 1112, to encourage medical students who attend a Pennsylvania medical school to stay in the Commonwealth after graduation. Pennsylvania has some of the best medical schools in the country, but unfortunately, many of the students leave PA for other states upon graduation.

My bill will provide for loan forgiveness up to $150,000 for each medical student who attends and graduates from a PA school, works as a doctor in PA (for up to 10 years) and volunteers at least 100 hours per year in the health care field. If these requirements are met, they would be eligible for loan forgiveness.

Introduced as SB892
