Purpose

The Physician/Community Match Program offers financial assistance in the form of forgivable loans to primary care physicians who agree to practice in underserved or rural communities in Oklahoma, particularly communities with a population below 10,000.

The community must agree to a 1:1 funding match for a qualified primary care physician to establish a practice.

Eligibility

Eligibility includes:

  • Not currently practicing in a rural Oklahoma community and desires to practice in an Oklahoma community that is participating in the match program
  • Graduated from an accredited medical or osteopathic college and successfully completed a postdoctoral program in primary care or a primary care specialty as approved by the Physician Manpower Training Commission (PMTC)
  • Has not previously received funding through PMTC scholarship programs
  • Has no other assistance which has a conflicting service obligation requirement
  • Specialties other than primary care may be approved by PMTC if a valid need exists in a matching community

A list of non-qualifying communities may be found on the program website.
