Legislation originated and sponsored by Senator Robert Singer (R- Monmouth and Ocean) that establishes a physician loan redemption program for certain specialties moved one step closer to becoming law today after being advanced by the Assembly Higher Education Committee. The bill is based on a recommendation in a report issued by the New Jersey Council of Teaching Hospitals that states loan forgiveness is one of the top factors that medical residents look for in determining a practice.

The report found New Jersey is facing significant future shortages in both primary care and several specialty areas. In eleven years there is a projected 12 percent shortfall in the physician supply versus the likely population demand for services.

“Facing a significant shortage of physicians in needed specialties and a growing demand for care, it’s important we act now to create incentives to attract and retain the best-trained physicians,” said Singer. “Incentives like loan redemption programs will help close that gap and draw more doctors into the specialty areas needed most.”
