Financial Services for Medical Students

Our services for students begin with prospective students and continue on to help our alumni as they enter their residencies and beyond. We advise students on various aspects such as financing their medical education, debt management matters, and financial literacy. This includes:

  • General Financial Aid Assistance
  • Entrance Loan Counseling
  • Creating and maintaining a personal budget to cover living expenses while enrolled
  • Assistance with the organization and tracking of student loans using AAMC Medloans Organizer and NSLDS.
  • Information on scholarship programs
  • Mini workshops on tax preparation, building strong credit and avoiding identity theft
  • Personalized one-on-one loan and debt counseling prior to graduation
  • And more (see additional links to the right, within the Resources box)

It is our goal that students are aware of the financial tools available to help with financial well being during medical school and beyond.
