The Kansas Bridging Plan (KBP) is a loan forgiveness program for primary care and psychiatry residents created to encourage physicians to practice in Kansas upon completion of their residency training.
Each year the State of Kansas funds up to 13 slots for primary care and 3 slots for psychiatry.
Matching funds from the State and a Kansas health care organization provide a combined financial incentive of at least $26,000 in exchange for a 36-month commitment to practice in an eligible Kansas county (excludes Douglas, Johnson, Sedgwick, Shawnee, and Wyandotte).
KBP has a robust retention history of participants who continue to practice in Kansas upon completion of their obligation.
The University of Kansas Medical Center, Rural Health Education and Services (RHES), administers the Kansas Bridging Plan.
