The programs are intended to improve recruitment and retention of healthcare professionals, particularly in areas of the state that are experiencing shortages of doctors, nurses, and support staff. The repayment programs, including the State Loan Repayment Program (SLRP), the Maryland Loan Assistance Repayment Program (MLARP) for Physicians and Physician Assistants and the MLARP for Nurses and Nursing Support Staff, are funded with federal and state resources. The programs are administered by the Maryland Department of Health (MDH).
