Looking for help with your student loans? Visit AAMC’s FIRST (Financial Information, Resources, Services, and Tools.

Medical school is expensive and high graduating debt can pose a significant financial burden, especially with the unique repayment challenges of medical residency training. Lowering interest rates on federal student loans can significantly ease this burden. View the AAMC's Medical Education Debt Fact Card.

The AAMC works with the Federation of Associations of Schools of Health Professions (FASHP) to improve federal loan and repayment programs under the Department of Education and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), such as the Title VII health professions student aid programs and the National Health Service Corps (NHSC).
