CMU College of Medicine is among four Michigan-based medical schools that collaborated on the MIDOCS program. This new, state-funded program was set up to expand residency positions in select specialties to recruit and retain physicians in rural and underserved areas in the state of Michigan. MIDOCs offers up to $75,000 in loan repayment to residents who enter these positions in exchange for a commitment to practice for at least two years immediately after residency in a rural or urban underserved setting in Michigan approved by the MIDOCs Consortium. Residents must also agree to forego any sub-specialty training for at least two years post-residency. The program was developed to increase the number of medical residencies in the state — especially in the primary care specialties of family medicine, internal medicine, psychiatry, pediatrics, and obstetrics and gynecology.
