KBP & Education Manager
Due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) concerns, we are evaluating the impact on the Kansas Bridging Plan (KBP) application cycles. The next scheduled KBP application cycle is Sept. 1 - Dec. 31, 2020. At this time, please keep these dates on your calendar and check this website for any updates that become available.
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 14 slots for primary care and three slots for psychiatry.
Matching funds from the State and a Kansas health care organization can 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 & Services (RHES), administers the Kansas Bridging Plan.
