CHAPTER 23-14.1

Health Professional Loan Repayment Program

SECTION 23-14.1-1



   § 23-14.1-1  Legislative findings. –

The general assembly finds that:



   (1) It is the right of every citizen of the state to have

ready access to quality health care; and



   (2) Health care facilities serving the poor, including

community health centers throughout the state, are experiencing increasing

difficulty in attracting and retaining physicians and other health

professionals to administer to the needy populations they serve. Therefore, it

is the general assembly's intent to provide incentives, in the form of loan

repayment, to physicians, dentists, dental hygienists, nurse practitioners,

certified nurse midwives, physician assistants and any other eligible health

care professional under § 338A of the Public Health Service Act, 42 U.S.C.

§ 254l, who desire to serve the health care needs of medically underserved

individuals in Rhode Island.
