Primary Care Incentive Programs

Choose Virginia: A Healthy Place to Live and Work!

The Commonwealth of Virginia offers several incentive programs to attract primary health professionals to Virginia's underserved areas. These programs not only assist with paying down outstanding medical education debt but also afford individuals an opportunity to become part of a community and provide care to deserving populations.

Awards for all programs administered by the Virginia Department of Health are made on a competitive basis and limited to available funding. Priority for awards is given to candidates providing medical services in Virginia's most underserved areas.

Repayments are for the sole purpose of repaying outstanding educational loan debt secured while attending a program that led to licensure as a health professional.
