If you are a KMSL or KOMS recipient, Rural Health Education and Services offers additional benefits during your residency in Kansas (KBP, KLT, KRRC) or Missouri (KRRC).
Additional Loan Forgiveness / Kansas Bridging Plan (KBP)
Already planning to practice in a rural Kansas community? Take advantage of an additional $26,000 in loan forgiveness and serve your commitments concurrently. The KBP is available to resident physicians in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Medicine-Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, Psychiatry, Child Psychiatry, and Medicine-Psychiatry. Matching funds from the State of Kansas and a health care organization provide a combined incentive of at least $26,000 ($10,000 available during residency) in exchange for a 36-month commitment to practice in a rural Kansas community upon completion of residency training. Residents are encouraged to apply Sept 1 – Dec. 31.
Temporary Coverage / Kansas Locum Tenens (KLT)
Earn additional income during residency by moonlighting. Opportunities available all across Kansas for resident physicians in Family Medicine, Pediatrics, and General Internal Medicine. KLT providers may select the assignment of their choice and are paid competitive rates that are set by the organization. Sponsorships are available to cover medical professional liability insurance. Providers can begin providing coverage after one year of residency training. KLT providers must have a full license issued by the Kansas Board of Healing Arts, a DEA certificate, and program director's authorization.
