MIDOCs Program


The MIDOCs Program is for residents who have a passion to spend their careers working with underserved and vulnerable populations.

In 2017, MIDOCs was developed with state funding and in partnership with four medical schools: Central Michigan University College of Medicine, Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, Wayne State University School of Medicine, and Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine.

The goal is to expand residency positions in select specialties and to train physicians who want to spend their careers working with underserved populations in the state of Michigan. MIDOCs residencies feature a variety of enhanced curricular elements in areas such as ambulatory care, quality improvement, population health, interprofessional collaboration, and care of diverse and underserved populations.

Acceptance of a MIDOCs residency slot includes a two-year commitment to practice in a rural or urban underserved area in Michigan post-residency. Additionally, residents may also receive up to $75,000 for repayment of qualifying educational loans.
