How to Match with Loan Forgiveness Candidates
Dentists, Certified Nurse Midwives, CRNAs, Nurse Practitioners, Physicians (FP, OB, General Surgery and Psychiatry), and Physician Assistants.
What & Where?
Rural and Urban Oregon practice sites with a HPSA score can match with candidates with minimum service commitment of 1-5 years through the Primary Care Loan Forgiveness Program & Scholars for a Healthy Oregon Initiative.
Matches are starting now and continuing for the next 5+ years.
There’s no cost to the site to match with candidate(s) committed to underserved practice.
Next steps are outlined below.

Connect with Candidates Now
If you’re not connecting with these candidates early, you may miss your opportunity. Candidates are on a tight timeline and many will be contracting early with only 90 days to begin service from the time they graduate or complete residency.
- Invite candidates for a chat, a site visit, or even host a rotation. Hosting rotations is a great way to introduce candidates to your community and facility. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org | 503-494-4450 | toll-free 866-674-4376.
