MIDOCs Program


MIDOCs is a state-funded program to expand residency positions in select specialties to recruit and retain physicians in underserved areas in the state of Michigan.

MIDOCs residencies may 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.

MIDOCs offers up to $75,000 in loan repayment to residents who enter these positions. In exchange, the resident commits to practice for at least two years immediately after residency - in a rural or urban underserved setting in Michigan that is approved by the MIDOCs Consortium. Residents must also agree to forego any sub-specialty training for at least two years post-residency.

MIDOCs residents are selected through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) process which opens each fall. Medical students are invited to interview in November and December, and ranking takes place in January. MIDOCs positions are filled through the Main Residency Match which takes place in March, and resident contracts are signed by July. All MIDOCs residency programs meet ACGME requirements.
