A Deferred Cost of Education Plan for Podiatric Medicine.
American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine, Washington, DC.; Academy for Educational Development, Washington, DC.
A study carried out by the American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine and the Academy for Educational Development: (1) examines and documents the financial needs and prospects of colleges of podiatric medicine; (2) analyzes the case for and against a deferred cost of education plan for the colleges of podiatric medicine; and (3) develops a funding plan and a course of action. The proposed deferred cost of education funding plan would establish in advance an option for the U.S. Government to finance, to the extent deemed necessary in future periods, professional health care services in underserved areas. When students are ready to practice, they also would have the option of repaying the borrowed funds either in cash or in the service for which they have committed themselves. The expectation is that the amount borrowed for education costs will be high enough to make it worthwhile for many students to provide the three years of future service for which they are contracted.
