Loan Forgiveness and Repayment

Kansas Bridging Plan - Loan Forgiveness

Rural Health Education and Services (RHES) administers the Kansas Bridging Plan (KBP)  to assist communities and resident physicians in meeting the need for primary care providers throughout the State. The KBP  is a loan forgiveness program designed to encourage primary care physicians to practice in rural Kansas upon completion of residency training. The organization and the State provide a financial incentive in exchange for a 36-month commitment from a physician to practice in a community. Learn more about the Kansas Bridging Plan.
