Advocacy Briefs: ACP Endorses Student Loan Deferment Legislation.
ACP has endorsed the “Medical Education Affordability Act,” a bill proposed in the U.S. Senate that would allow physicians-in-training to defer repayment of their student loans while they complete their residency or fellowship. Current law relating to the economic hardship deferment option allows physicians who meet specific debt-to-income ratios to defer repayment of federal educational loans for up to three years. The new proposed legislation would extend this deferment to include the entire length of “postgraduate medical or dental internship, residency, or fellowship programs.” To view a copy of the ACP’s letter of support, see ACP online.
