The Tuition and Student Fees workbooks contain tuition, fees, and health insurance costs reported by accredited medical education programs from academic year 1996-1997 through the most recent academic year of available data.
Within each workbook, the tab labeled Summary Statistics contains aggregate information organized by academic year, cost type (e.g., tuition), medical school ownership (i.e., public or private), and medical student residence status (i.e., in-state or out-of-state). The tabs labeled by academic year contain tuition and fee costs by medical school, medical school ownership, and medical student residence status.
Most of the information in the workbooks come from the AAMC Tuition and Student Fees Questionnaire. The LCME Part I-B Student Financial Aid Questionnaire is the source of health insurance information from academic years 2002-2003 through 2005-2006.
The tuition, fees, and health insurance costs are the costs published by medical schools. As a result, these costs do not reflect discounts resulting from grants, scholarships, or stipends.
