That's an interesting trend. I recall when I went into teaching there was a program in my state whereby if you went to a state university you could get a certain type of loan and if you taught in a public school in that state for five years they would forgive the loan.

Maybe they need something like that for MEs and public universities. Or even if they don't totally forgive the loan, they could forgive a portion of it. A way of making those jobs more attractive to folks with big med school loans.

Military does something sort of similar for doctors. They pay for med school and in fact docs make O1 pay the whole time they're in med school and then as soon as they graduate they're O3s with no debt. I think they owe the military something like 8 years of service after they graduate and then they can opt to stay in or leave.
