    Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program notice of publication of interim final rule

    USDA’s Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program (VMLRP) helps qualified veterinarians offset a significant portion of the debt incurred in pursuit of their veterinary medicine degrees in return for their service in certain high-priority veterinary shortage situations. The Interim Final Rule describing proposed implementation of the VMLRP, authorized by the National Veterinary Medical Services Act (NVMSA), has been published in the Federal Register. Also, a tentative 12-month schedule for implementing the program has been established.

    Veterinarians are critical to the national food safety and food security infrastructures, and to the health and well-being of both animals and humans; however, major studies indicate significant and growing shortages of food supply veterinarians and veterinarians serving in certain other specialty areas. A leading cause for this shortage is the heavy cost of 4 years of professional veterinary medical training. The VMLRP was established as a remedy.

    Thank you for the info. I had been trying to find out more about it and even called the USDA but as usual they were so unhelpful.

    Only took in excess of five years to actually get funding. I'm a 2003 OSU grad, program was on the books around the time I graduated and has continued to be. Never had actualy monies though.
