Oklahoma Physician/Community Match Program
Janie S. Thompson, M.Ed.
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.
- 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 lump sum payment between $30,000 - $50,000 is provided when the physician begins practice in the matching community.
A minimum 2 years of service is required. The loan is forgiven after completion of the practice obligation.
