      Graduate Medical Education (GME)

        Rural Loan Repayment

        To increase access to high-quality healthcare by growing Nevada's healthcare workforce, particularly in underserved communities, a practitioner may enter the Pennington Rural Health Services Loan Repayment Program (PRHSLRP) by engaging in full-time clinical practice and residing in an assigned rural community in exchange for funding used to repay qualified educational loans.
