Advanced Practitioner Student Loan Assistance

At PracticeMatch, we recognize the significant concern that student loans pose for physicians and advanced practice providers, often influencing career decisions. In response, we've collaborated with valuable resources to assist you in optimizing savings opportunities throughout your professional journey. Additionally, you can now streamline your job search by exclusively looking for positions eligible for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program. Simply select 501(c)3 in the search parameters to focus on opportunities that align with your financial goals.

  • Navigating the transition to practice involves strategic considerations, particularly for physicians as the average APP faces a substantial federal student loan debt exceeding $150k. Given that many APPs work for 501(c)3 hospitals, the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program becomes a viable option for great savings. PracticeMatch, in collaboration with BenElevate and Doctors Without Quarters, is dedicated to helping non-profit and government employees maximize savings through PSLF, taking advantage of recent program adjustments.
  • For individuals employed in non-profit and government sectors, the potential for substantial federal loan forgiveness under the more lenient requirements of the PSLF program is noteworthy. PracticeMatch has forged partnerships with BenElevate and Doctors Without Quarters to provide valuable assistance in maximizing savings for professionals in this category, with detailed benefits outlined below.
  • Contrastingly, APPs engaged in for-profit endeavors, private practice, or working as independent contractors may find PSLF unavailable. However, alternative avenues exist to mitigate debt costs in these sectors. A growing number of employers now offer lump-sum repayment options and monthly contributions. In such scenarios, strategic refinancing to secure lower rates within the private marketplace emerges as a potentially optimal solution for financial relief.
  • To assess whether refinancing aligns with your needs, considering your prospective employer and household income, you can obtain quotes swiftly and credit score-free through the provided link in just two minutes. Moreover, PracticeMatch candidates stand to benefit from a $500 cash bonus when refinancing, provided their loan balance amounts to $100k or more. This proactive approach ensures that physicians and APPs are well-informed and empowered to make financially sound decisions.
