  1. Hi fellow PA's I am looking to move to NC around June this year- i have family just east of Charlotte figured i can work up to an hour away and live within 30 min of each. I would prefer to find a job that qualifies for the National Health Service Corps loan repayment. I have almost 4 years in internal med/hospitalist and cardiology. Was also open to urgent care also if i cant find a primary care position... Any information on potential jobs would be great. Any website advice you used to find a job would help also... Or if you have found places that qualify how did u find them? any advice about the process would be great. Also was considering living in Monroe, or Concord-- any advice there would be appreicated as well. Thought about Gastonia too. I have been in the general area a few times but advice from locals would be greatly appreciated. I hear lots of good things about ashville and raleigh-durham area however its too far away from family and thats my main motivation to move to begin with-- lived far away for far too long! Basically I dont have much to go on just using indeed.com, the Carolina's healthcare website, and I have been to the North Carolina PA website also and hoping something pops out at me. So far mostly just recruiters and they scare me... Lastly and i swear im done picking ya'alls brain ... advice on moving cross state. I think i ll need to pay someone to pack me and move me... any company recommendations with reasonable prices?? THANK YOU SO MUCH for any help or advice in this process.... its much harder when im almost 9 hours away! Lindsey
  2. Hello, I have been considering the military after I graduate PA school because I have a significant amount of debt and I think it would be a great experience. Can someone explain the process of joining the National Guard as a PA with no previous military experience? Also, what is the commitment and role of a PA in the guard? Are there significant benefits for loan repayment? I would rather hear this first from someone who has been in this situation rather than a recruiter. Thanks!
  3. Any one have any experience with hospital loan repayment? I started a job in a rural area three years ago at a hospital that offers $20,000 per year towards loan repayment. That money is then forgiven after 3 years of service on the back end. So long story short I have been at my job now for just shy of three years and have taken out a total of 60,000 from them for loan repayment. I had full intention of staying at this position indefinitely but circumstances at the hospital make that no longer an option, and I'm looking for a new position with a more stable environment. My impression is that if I leave my job at this time, the hospital could ask back for approx 40,000$.. which is far too large of a sum for me to just write a check for... Anyone have any experience with hospitals that offer promissory notes for loan repayment? Trying to figure out if there is anyway to navigate this situation that won't bankrupt me.
  4. I'm considering doing a 2 year commitment to the Indian Health Service once I graduate (May 2018) to get some help paying back my loans. Does anyone have any experience as a PA with the IHS or what it's like working on a reservation? I've heard mixed reviews but it seems like a great way to help an underserved population while getting help paying back my pile of student loan debt.
  5. Hi everyone, I will soon be starting PA school in the fall. I am currently looking at several routes of paying off my future student debt and thought about jobs that help with loan repayment. How rare is it to come across jobs that will help pay off student debt? If so, how much do they typically help out with? Thanks so much!

    VA HPSP

    Hey all. Figured I'd post this since there are so many people messaging me and creating threads on the military HPSP (which appears to be no longer available to PAs). It appears that the VA is also creating an HPSP program that will be available to PAs and will begin to receive applications in January of 2016. Here's an excerpt from the VA website: In all honesty, I would say that this scholarship program is actually better than the military scholarship program for most people, especially if you have a family and are not prior enlisted, due to the lack of deployments and decreased obligation (minimum for this scholarship is 1 year, as opposed to the military, which is 3 years). Of course, it is the federal government so it may not come to fruition, but it's definitely an interesting concept.
