Financial Aid Information
Obtaining an education in one of the healthcare professions is very expensive. Most people will require some form of financial aid in order to get through to the point of becoming an independent professional. Clearly, most students apply for a variety of student loans.
The purpose of this page is to make you aware of some alternative sources of funding. Many of these programs will pay a significant part of your expenses through medical, dental, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, optometry, or other health-related professional school, in exchange for a few years of service to the organization that sponsors the program. We encourage you to consider these funding sources. They represent an avenue that will allow you to begin your practice without being heavily burdened with outstanding loans.
