Oregon Office of Rural Health

Our mission is to improve the quality, availability and accessibility of health care for rural Oregonians.


Loan Repayment Programs


The Office of Rural Health helps communities address healthcare workforce shortages in Oregon’s rural and underserved communities. We help communities recruit and retain qualified and committed healthcare providers. As an incentive to new healthcare providers interested in practicing in rural and underserved areas, the Oregon Office of Rural Health administers two loan repayment programs. Whether you are a rural facility or an interested student or provider, we provide information about the Oregon and Medicaid Primary Care Loan Repayment programs, as well as other loan repayment options.
