State Incentive Programs that Encourage Allied Health Professionals to Provide Care for Underserved Populations


    Numerous state governments provide incentives for health professionals to practice in shortage areas, but we know little about these programs collectively and the lessons they offer about recruiting and retaining allied health professionals. This study will examine state incentive programs that encourage allied health professionals to provide care for rural and underserved communities, providing findings on programs’ goals, policies, practices, and impacts.
