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.

The community must agree to a 40% funding match for a qualified primary care physician to establish a practice, with the state providing 60% of the loan amount.


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 Oklahoma Health Care Workforce Training Commission (HWTC)
  • Has not previously received funding through HWTC scholarship programs
  • Has no other assistance which has a conflicting service obligation requirement
  • Is not currently on a J-1 Visa

Amount of funding

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 for $30,000 loans, and three years of service is required for loans of $50,000. The loan is forgiven after completion of the practice obligation.
