    1.) You must serve a 5 year practice as a primary care physician. Regardless of whether or not you got specialty training.

    2.) If you decide to remain a PCP, you get 1/2 of your student loans wiped out. HALVED.

    3.) If you serve 15 years as a PCP, all your student loans are FORGIVEN.

    4.) If you serve 10 years as a PCP in a Fully Qualified Health Care Center, in an underserved community, that qualifies you for TOTAL STUDENT LOAN FORGIVENESS.

    Same with nurses. If you are an RN in a FQHCC, you get your loans forgiven in 10 years.

    Health care should not be a privilege for the few, but a human right for all.

      I know many great docs who in the 70's chose to enter the service or serve the underserved...I believe it was the Berry Plan. Would be nice if there was an option today.

      and pediatrics are in themselves specialties.

      Theere are ~X dermatogists produced because the federal government pays for X dermatology residences.
