Medical Student Financial Services offers exit loan counseling via our "Senior Series" - a number of webinars, group sessions, and guided conversations tailored just for you! While the Senior Series is geared toward those in their fourth year, students from ALL levels are welcome to attend. We believe debt counseling should occur throughout your entire medical education, not just the very end.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT STUDENT LOAN CALCULATORS

The AAMC has a customized student loan calculator, called the MedLoans Organizer & Calculator. It allows you to enter several parameters such as residency length and training salary, and projected income post-residency. Watch the 10 minute video demo here. These parameters create the most accurate repayment scenarios compared to the loan calculators on your Servicer's website or with your Federal Student Aid login.

 

For married students: Are you curious about filing separately instead of jointly, for purposes of education loan repayment? The AAMC's calculator mentioned above currently does not account for this scenario, however we can recommend the following calculators via Pay for Ed's website in College Payer - https://www.payfored.com/solutions/in-college-payer/

Student Loan Repayer - https://www.payfored.com/solutions/student-loan-repayer/

Pay for Ed's calculators cost a small fee, however, you can enter the discount code LCM to receive 33% off (final price $45.00).
