North Carolina Community Practitioner Program
Franklin Walker, MBA
The North Carolina Community Practitioner Program (CPP) offers loan repayment assistance to primary care physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who agree to practice in a Health Professional Shortage Area of North Carolina.
Applicants must agree to remain at the practice site for a period of 5 years.
Physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who practice in family medicine, internal medicine, and pediatrics will be considered. In addition, OB/GYN medicine, general surgery, and psychiatric medicine will be considered in areas of the state where there is a great need.
Funding depends upon the size of the educational loan, the anticipated level of available funds each year, the level of practice support in treating underserved populations, and the intent of becoming a vital member of the community. The average grant is generally no more than half of the education debt, up to a maximum of $70,000.
Contact the North Carolina Office of Rural Health to determine eligibility for state or federal loan repayment assistance before applying to the CPP Program.
