*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 Loan Repayment Program (LRP)was 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.
