The Michigan State Loan Repayment Program is a state medical education debt repayment program focused on assisting employers in the recruitment and retention of medical, dental, and mental healthcare providers.

Providers in the program receive funds to repay their educational debt, in exchange for a 2-year full-time service obligation.
