I will be graduating LECOM in Lake Erie, Pennsylvania next year and was interested in pediatrics. I am interested in loan repayment program but was wondering if I could go to another state such as Hawaii or Arkansas and use their loan repayment plan instead of Pennsylvania's.

Short answer -- talk to the financial aid adviser at your institution.  Some in-state schools with state funding offer promissory notes/grants, but these often come with restrictions so you will have to evaluate them -- dig into the fine print.  That being said, if you have loans, especially subsidized government loans, make sure you know all your repayment options (IBR, REPAYE, etc), and the type of institution you need to attend/work in (usually non-profit) to take advantage of repayment options.   Besides SDN, another good resource is whitecoatinvestor.  Good luck.
