What are other ways to pay for medical school besides loans and scholarships?

Medical school is expensive, as everyone knows. And paying off loans will increase the amount of stress for a medical student to go through. Are there ways to earn some cash to pay off the debt and to avoid getting loans for medical school? Scholarships can be limited as well. #medicine #money-management #finance #debtfree #student-debt #debt

Carlos’s Answer

An additional option is applying to schools that already offered full-tuition scholarships for Medical school. New York University announced in 2019 that all medical students, current and future, would receive full-tuition scholarships going forward. After that announcement, a number of schools are doing something similar. The same article I read stated that 20% of UCLA's David Geffen School of Medicine have been awarded scholarships that cover all their expenses. I am attaching the link for the article, but do additional research because there may me more that have starting doing that. Hope this helps

Depending on the major that you graduated with, you may qualify for different programs to pay off your loans. As an example if you are that is needed in a small town, for that small town to have a dentist, state will pay off your schooling as long as you agree to live in that town for the next 5 years and take care of their community. Your advisors in collage would know about programs you may qualify for.
