Evan, I don't know if a PhD qualifies for a "physician loan," but you might try this.

My son and future DIL just bought a house with a physician loan without having to produce at least one paycheck stub, but on her residency contract alone.

Note: some of the discussion about rates and fees for such a loan is no longer valid as rates have improved recently. My son/DIL got 2.625 at par (no points to the lender; no rebate from the lender) for a 5/1 ARM.
