What is Doctors Across New York (DANY)?

  • DANY is a state-funded initiative created in 2008 to help train and place physicians in underserved communities.
  • The Physician Loan Repayment ("PLR") and Physician Practice Support ("PPS") programs make funds available to help recruit and retain physicians to work in medically underserved areas of New York State.

  2. Support to a physician to establish or join a medical practice; or
