Last week legislation was approved to finally include physical therapists in the list of health
providers eligible for student loan forgiveness.
"This amendment provides valuable incentives to enter the profession of
physical therapy and help meet the high demand for physical therapists
that exists across the nation," said American Physical Therapy
Association (APTA) President R Scott Ward, PT, PhD. "Physical
therapists often begin their careers with significant levels of student
loan debt. Offering forgiveness will help enhance physical therapy
availability for children, adolescents and veterans, and provide
lasting health benefits in these areas."
Indeed! Physical therapists, does this legislation effect you? It doesn't help me, but I am only one. Check in with a comment!
