Government on Track to Forgive Up to $131,000 in Student Debt for Thousands of Doctors

Many highly paid doctors are poised to get a very large windfall from the federal government.

A program designed to ease the student-debt burden of teachers, public defenders and other modestly paid workers in the public sector is also set to help thousands of physicians, many of whom work for nonprofit hospitals. On average, recent medical-school graduates who enroll in the program will have roughly $131,000 in their student debt forgiven.
