The Public Service Loan Forgiveness program is a United States government program created under the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007 to provide indebted professionals a way out of their federal student loan debt burden by working full time in public service.
“Student loan debt is one of the biggest concerns from our physicians-in-training,” said School of Medicine Financial Wellness Advisor Kelli Wright. “The Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program is working, and we thought it was important to bring in medical professionals who have had their loans forgiven, to share the process, their experience and what things they would do differently.”
The School of Medicine’s Office of Scholarships and Financial Wellness is part of the Office of Enrollment Management. Food will be provided and several prizes will be awarded to those who attend.
