Hello, I'm graduating in August and am planning to take the PANCE in mid September and start work at an ED on a Native American reservation in the fall. I'm interested in finding out if/how EM providers manage to take advantage of IHS loan repayment programs. It seems to me that the work requirements by the loan repayment program (LRP) are quite restrictive and wouldn't work very well for clustered blocks of shifts like I plan to do (I plan to commute for my shifts from my home 3 hours away and stay on the rez while I'm working). If anyone has any experience making their EM shifts work within the requirements of the IHS LRP, I'd love to know how you do that. Or, if there's some other, less restrictive, loan repayment options available, please let me know. Thank you!
So I applied this year for the loan repayment program with NHSC. I waited patiently yesterday, which was the deadline, but never got any notification whether or not I got my award. Anyone else in this situation? It looks like online that they didn't even look at my application. What's up with these people?
I am considering taking a position in a critical access hospital with a HPSA score of 14. The position is ER / UC - not primary care. Does anyone have experience with NHSC LRP in this situation? Would the position qualify for loan repayment? Thanks.
