The USDA has declared 196 veterinary shortage areas in 41 states for 2021. To address these shortages, the Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program (VMLRP) provides veterinarians up to $25,000 a year for student loan repayment in exchange for at least three years of service in one of the USDA-designated shortage areas. Applications are now being accepted for the VMLRP through April 16. Visit the AVMA@Work blog to learn more about the veterinary shortage areas and VMLRP.
