Community Match Rural Physician Recruitment Program

The purpose of the program is to assist medically underserved communities in Arkansas with physician recruitment by offering additional financial incentives to participating physicians.

How it works: A physician who is either in their residency or no more than two years out of residency, and a Rural Community in Arkansas may jointly apply. The physician agrees to practice Primary Care in the community for a period of four years. In return, the community agrees to pay the physician an additional $10,000 per year and the State pays $10,000 per year for a total of $80,000 for four years.
