Doctors Across New York (DANY)
What is Doctors Across New York (DANY)?
Doctors Across New York is a state-funded initiative created in 2008 to help train and place physicians in underserved areas to provide care for New York’s diverse population. The program provides funds for practice support or loan repayment for service commitments in underserved areas. One-third of the funds go to underserved sites in New York City, with two-thirds going to sites in the rest of the state.
DANY programs include: Physician Practice Support (PPS) and Physician Loan Repayment (PLR).
Physician Practice Support provides up to $100,000 in funding over a two-year period to applicants who can identify a licensed physician that has completed training and will commit to a three-year service obligation in an underserved region within New York State.
Physician Loan Repayment provides up to $120,000 in funding over a three-year period for physicians who commit to a five-year service obligation in an underserved region.
