Physician Assistant Program


Useful Resources for External Loan Repayment Opportunities

Many students finance their physician assistant education through loans. The rigorous and faced-paced nature of the LSUHSC-NO MPAS program curriculum does not allow time for the student to work during the program or take courses part-time. The average PA student will graduate with approximately $100,000 in student debt (this includes debt accumulated prior to PA school).

Please see the list below for external loan repayment opportunities: 

  • AmeriCorps :  This program helps repay education loans in exchange for a year of service in selected areas across the United States.
  • Health Professions Scholarship Program - NAVY or AIR FORCE:  These programs open slots for loan repayment based on need. Additional information is available at the respective websites.
  • Indian Health Service (IHS) :  This program seeks to place healthcare professionals, including PAs, in IHS health centers for a minimum of two years.
  • National Health Services Corp : This program is for PAs who agree to practice in under-served communities as a primary care provider.
  • U.S. Army Program :  This three-year loan repayment program is available for those who serve as an Army PA.
