WMed participates in MI Docs, an exciting new program in the state of Michigan. MI Docs is a state-funded program set up to finance expanded residency positions in select specialties within the state. Residents who enter these new positions contractually commit to practice for at least two years after residency in a rural or urban underserved setting in Michigan. In exchange, the MI Docs residents qualify for up to $75,000 of educational loan repayment. MI Docs residencies also feature a variety of enhanced curricular elements in areas such as ambulatory care, quality improvement, interprofessional collaboration, and care of the underserved.
WMed has MI Docs residents in our Internal Medicine and Family Medicine residencies already and anticipates expanding our offerings in the 2020 academic year.
If you are interested, please contact your program to determine if they participate in this exciting program.
