If you are a KMSL or KOMS recipient, Rural Health offers additional benefits during your physician residency in Kansas.
Here's how we can help you.
Additional Loan Forgiveness / Kansas Bridging Plan
Already planning to practice in a rural Kansas community? Take advantage of an additional $26,000 in loan forgiveness and serve your commitments concurrently. KBP is available to resident physicians in family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, medicine pediatrics, and emergency medicine. 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. First-year residents are encouraged to apply Sept 1st - Dec. 31st.
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 ($1450 per day plus travel). Rural Health has access to funding sources to help cover malpractice insurance costs. 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.
