Medical education loan reimbursement update
Oct. 25, 2023
Earlier this month, FMA Secretary Alma Littles, MD, CEO Chris Clark, and other healthcare leaders joined Florida Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nuñez at a press conference in Tallahassee touting the Florida Reimbursement Assistance for Medical Education (FRAME) Program. The FRAME Program assists eligible healthcare practitioners, including physicians, with the repayment of medical education loans. The FMA secured an annual appropriation of nearly $6.6 million for this program during the 2022 Legislative Session, and physicians and residents received the majority of funds allocated this year. The 2024 awards cycle will reopen on Feb. 1.
