$2M+ and 20 warm bodies per year. I guess MSU COM had no interest in those GME spots - the DMC proposal to them promised all free CMS slots to be directed to DO or joint MD/DO accredited programs/applications.

ABC for PDQ, but without MRSP, the OBDC/LMNOP!

More info please! What's the deal with MSUCOM? When are they accepting applications. How are they planning on filling the year 3-5 spots, or will they? Who is going to run it? I thought Blaiser was planning on retiring in 2010 or something to pursue his dream of being a lawyer?

If you go back and read the Portable Document Format (PDF) that includes the Detroit Medical Center (DMC) proposal to Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine (MSU COM), they specifically address the residency slots either solely DMC sponsored or open/unfilled. The proposal states that those spots would be available for MSU COM to apply for osteopathic (DO) residencies or to apply to make them combined allopathic (MD) / osteopathic. The paper today makes it seems that that is not the actual plan. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredits MD programs, it is uncommon for a DO student to match into an MD orthopaedic program. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) slots alloted to the DMC can be filled. Without filling these slots with live residents, the DMC would not receive the money approximately one hundred thousand dollars (~$100k). CMS slots not filled with accredited residents (DO or MD or podiatric) equals potential money not coming in.
I do not know any of the plans about filling any residency positions or a list of program director successors or for that matter career plans of current program director.
