MIDOCs Program for CMU College of Medicine Residents

MIDOCs is a state-funded program that offers up to $75,000 in loan repayment to residents who enter primary care 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. Residents must also agree to forego any sub-specialty training for at least two years post-residency. The program is particularly well-suited for learners already dedicated to primary care and serving medically underserved populations.

CMU College of Medicine is among four Michigan-based medical schools that collaborated on the MIDOCS program. The program was created to address the physician shortage in Michigan by increasing the number of residency slots, especially in primary care specialties; increase access to care by recruiting and retaining residents to practice in high-need, rural and urban underserved areas after their training; and help alleviate medical school debt for doctors practicing in Michigan’s medically underserved communities.


CMU residency programs currently participating in the MIDOCs program include:
