This letter report provides the results of our audit of the Allopathic Medicine
Health Professions Student Loans (HPSL) Program at the University of Washington.
The HPSL program was implemented through the Public Health Service Act. The
Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has overall management responsibilities
for the program at the Federal level.
We determined that the University was appropriately using HPSL funds to provide loans to eligible medical students and was generally in compliance with regulations concerning the administration of loans. However, our audit revealed that the University was carrying uncollectible loans in their accounting records.
