Return of service
Scholars are expected to provide service for two years after graduation or passing the board examination for board programs. Otherwise, they must pay for their scholarship. Return service may be with any PHINMA company, but this does not guarantee employment. If the PHINMA company cannot provide employment, or if it chooses not to employ a scholar, this frees the scholar from their return of service.
