About the Kansas Bridging Plan

The University of Kansas Medical Center, Rural Health Education and Services (RHES), administers the Kansas Bridging Plan (KBP), a loan forgiveness program (up to $26,000) offered to physicians in Kansas residency programs of Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Medicine, Psychiatry, Child Psychiatry, and Medicine/Psychiatry, and Emergency Medicine.  

Participants agree to practice medicine full-time in a rural community (not located in Douglas, Johnson, Sedgwick, Shawnee or Wyandotte County) for 36 continuous months upon completion of their residency program.
