What is the LRP program?
The escalating costs of advanced education and training in medicine and clinical specialties force some scientists to abandon their research careers for higher-paying private industry or private practice careers. The NIH Loan Repayment Programs (LRPs) were established by Congress to recruit and retain highly qualified health professionals into biomedical or biobehavioral research careers with a commitment to engage in NIH mission-relevant research.
