USDA hopes to address veterinarian shortages

Email

WILLMAR -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture is implementing a new program that it hopes will address veterinary shortages throughout rural America by repaying the student loans of qualified veterinarians in return for their services in areas suffering from a lack of veterinarians.

USDA's National Institute for Food and Agriculture will administer the Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program, which was established by the National Veterinary Medical Service Act of 2003.
