Section 303 of Public Law 115-182, the VA Maintaining Internal Systems and Strengthening Integrated Outside Networks Act of 2018, or the VA MISSION Act of 2018, amended title 38 of the United States Code (U.S.C.) by establishing new sections 7691 through 7697 and created a new student loan repayment program known as the Specialty Education Loan Repayment Program (SELRP). The SELRP will serve as an incentive for physicians starting or currently in residency programs in medical specialties for which VA has determined that recruitment and retention of qualified personnel is difficult to work for VA at VA facilities that need more physicians with that medical specialty. Section 303 of the VA MISSION Act of 2018 did not establish an application procedure for the SELRP. To maintain consistency in the application process of similar VA scholarship programs and to ease the implementation such programs by VA personnel, VA will mirror proposed § 17.528 to current § 17.643, Application for the Program for Repayment of Educational Loans for Certain VA Psychiatrists (PREL.) Consistent with § 17.643(a), proposed paragraph § 17.528(a) will state that a complete application for the SELRP consists of a completed application, letters of reference, and personal statement.
