Financial Education for MD Students
At NYU School of Medicine, we strive to ensure our medical students graduate with minimal debt and maximum financial awareness. The Office of Financial Aid has compiled a variety of financial literacy resources to empower our students to make smart decisions about student loans, how to manage student loan debt, and their overall financial well-being.
Financial Information, Resources, Services, and Tools
The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) has created a financial literacy program, Financial Information, Resources, Serves, and Tools, also called FIRST. Some features of FIRST include videos and webinars on topics including how to pay for medical school, the cost of residency interviews, and selecting a loan repayment program, as well as a useful student loan calculator.
U.S. Department of Education Financial Counseling
The U.S. Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid Office offers undergraduate, graduate, and professional students a variety of financial aid counseling tools on StudentLoans.gov, including a repayment estimator.
Other Financial Resources for Medical Students
We recommend several other resources to help you manage your finances during medical school, including NYU School of Medicine’s financial aid webinar, a cost of living calculator, online courses on personal finance and investing for medical professionals, and tools to monitor your credit score.
