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.

Many of these programs reference health professional shortage areas (HPSA), for more information on shortage designations, click here.
