The average doctor graduates with $200,000 worth of student loans, and that debt burden factors into physicians' job decisions as they determine what makes the most sense for their career, happiness, and financial well-being. This webinar will provide insight into the current state of the student loan space for medical professionals and the pros/cons of the repayment options that are available to them upon graduation. Presenters will speak about how repayment options vary according to the physicians' loan type and choice of employer, as well as potential changes that may occur to federal repayment plans due to legislation currently before Congress. Participants will learn about the expectations that graduates have regarding employer-sponsored educational debt assistance. Presenters will then delve into the unique ways in which physician recruiters can use student loan repayment benefits as a recruiting and retention tool to attract the best medical talent, outside of expensive tuition reimbursement programs. Methods that will be covered include educating new hires on their repayment options, negotiating rate reductions with loan providers on behalf of their employees, and incorporating student loan repayments into a larger benefits offering.
